This violinist has done a string cover of the electric guitar solo in ‘Wild Thoughts’ and it sounds absolutely epic.

Anyone looking to kick off their pop/classical music career need only look to this violinist for inspiration.

Ezi is an Instagram violin star – find her under iamezinma – who has found her fame by adding a pop  edge to her performances, including this cover of the guitar solo in ‘Wild Thoughts’, the current No. 2 single in the UK by DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.

But this violinist has several other strings to her bow. She can also absolutely a nail a Mozart violin concerto, and has scooped up tens of thousands of followers through her contemporary interpretations of classic violin pieces.
