QVLN's signature, modern roots sound is a musical extension of his American, Mexican, and Brazilian heritage.
As a gifted multi-instrumentalist and performer, QVLN (pronounced Q-Violin) expresses his passions for love, life, and dance with his voice, violin, guitar, and percussion. Overflowing with creative and cultural curiosity, QVLN is on the road about 200 days a year performing at clubs, festivals, and cultural centers--and for people in remote parts of the world that commercial music bypasses. His dedication to bringing live music to often-neglected communities hasn't gone unnoticed. In 2015, QVLN once again had the honor of representing the United States as part of the State Department's American Music Abroad program, in conjunction with long-time collaborator Oveous and a talented group of musicians who reside in Los Angeles.
QVLN is also an accomplished dancer and capoeirista, which explains how he could pull off this one-take music video for the song Run Like The Wind.
With a full calendar of shows and musical collaborations slated for release this year, QVLN represents the best of the independent, artistic spirit that makes Los Angeles a creative leader on the world stage.
