Why is this "one of the few moments" violin is cool? Violin is one of the best instruments in existence.

Amazing. My only qualm is that his voice is pretty good but seems either muffled or a little too soft at points.

Given the repeated "Why that song?" posts, I`ll repost the link to his better known video:

Paul Dateh and Inka One - Hip Hop Violin

Which also addresses the "more instrumental" posts - no singing, just 6 mins of violin (Paul Dateh) and a DJ with some records and a couple of turntables (Inka One).

Try their cover of `Crazy` by Gnarls Barkley at ~4:15.

I wish they`d do more hip hop violin together. I`d buy an album of that.

I like the fact that he doesn`t have costumes, sets, music videos in which he`s pretending to play the violin in various strange situations and all that kind of thing.

I like the violin, but I don`t like his singing. I`m gonna download this, and cut out the singing...

And he`s not the best when it comes to the violin... there`s also Vanessa Mae to consider.

"Good skills but for drats sake WHY lady gaga?"

Exactly what i was thinking. Just because it`s popular doesn`t mean its good.

Lemmingboy is correct. I really wish I picked up and learned how to play a violin when I was younger. I love hearing the violin in rock songs. Or Cellos, like in Apocalyptica.

Pshh, this is nothing. Check out Emilie Autumn on Youtube. She`s been playing ever since she was 4 years old, she can play the harpsicord and the piano (and the violin too, obviously). She writes and produces ALL of her songs all by herself. She creates ALL of her costumes, merch, and stage sets.

For anyone who wants just a violin album with no singing at all, I suggest her album Laced/Unlaced.

On one side of the two-part album, there`s the acoustic violin songs (mostly cover songs, but still amazing). On the other side, there`s the electric violin songs that are 100% written and performed by her.

Enjoy.

He always looks that way while playing. The only time I`ve seen different is when he`s playing with someone else and has paused while the other person is playing something. He`s much more casual when he`s not playing. Maybe it`s his classical training.

This is Paul Dateh. He`s an eclectic musician who trained in classical violin from the age of 4 but likes to branch out into all genres.

He`s best known for the video that made him fairly famous and able to make a living from music:

Paul Dateh and Inka One - hip hop violin

My point of view is the same one as several people have already made - the violin is great, the rest not so much. He can sing, he can write, he can play the piano...but he can play violin a *lot* better. I was waiting eagerly to buy his first album, expecting predominantly violin and preferably the video above (which was pretty much the only media of him available at the time). Instead, the album was mostly him singing pop ballad stuff. Not bad, but not what I wanted and nowhere near as good as his violin.

Dude obviously put a lot of work into that but he`s taking himself so seriously (seemingly) that I just can`t get into it. I`d rather watch any of Weird Al Yankovic`s polka mash-ups. Check out "Polka Party" or anything else on YouTube if you really want to be entertained.
