Ode to the Black Fiddler is the first and only string music festival welcoming all music genres--for and by string musicians of color.

OBF Music Fest is a free string music festival that engages the community and unifies string performers of color across all genres of music. This diverse and thoughtfully-curated lineup constructs a new and vibrant string-culture, one that eliminates the longstanding  elitist stigma.

 

Vibe with IAH Studio and friends as we enjoy the sounds of Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul, Blues, Latin, Classical and Alternative, from some of today's top string musicians from around the world.

What They Say 

"This was truly moving and very inspiring for myself as well as my son. The performances held my seven year old's attention and he now wants to learn the violin! I was inspired by the performer's music as well as their journey. The food was great! I hope to see many many more events like this one in the near future."
