Miri Ben-Ari – “Quiet Storm”

“This song is about me being a strong woman, being myself. People say that I look ‘quiet’ but have a ‘storm’ inside me when playing the violin. ‘Quiet Storm’ is the first single on my comeback album, and I wanted to do what I do best: produce original music and bring it down Hip Hop violin style. I am humbled to represent and pioneer a musical genre that influenced so many musicians and artists.” –  Miri Ben-Ari

The video was filmed in The Bronx, New York, the birthplace of Hip Hop. Also, it shows Ben-Ari playing the violin in different locations where dancers perform different urban dance styles
