B2wins. Short for Brazilian Twins, this high energy entertainment group continues to captivate audiences worldwide with its unique sound and engaging, unforgettable live show. Led by charismatic Twin brothers from Rio de Janiero on electric violin and ukulele, their live show is a hybrid mix of rock concert, jam session, dance party, and stand-up comedy.
Fans describe it as like seeing your new best friends in concert.
Growing up in the violent, impoverished favelas (slums) of Brazil, the Twins began playing classical music on violins their father hand-made. They used music as an escape from their reality and began teaching others in their neighborhood.
After their orchestra was featured on NPR, the Twins were invited to the US on full ride music scholarships, quite a feat as they could not speak a word of English and had the equivalent of an 8th grade education. Flash forward 10 years, they now tour the United states full time, on a mission to change the world through their music, one smile at a time.
What they do extends far beyond music.
Music is simply the tool.
That tool has defeated poverty, overcome adversity, escaped violence and even beat cancer. Now the Twins are in pursuit of the biggest stages, to use as a platform to make the planet a better place.
