Born in South Florida to a Jamaican father and Barbadian mother, Malcolm, 23, and his 20-year-old brother Umoja learned to play violin through South Florida's public school system attending Bethune Elementary, Parkway Middle, and Dillard High School for the Performing Arts. Together, these brothers are Sons of Mystro using their violins to interpret reggae classics, American pop songs and their own creations accompanied by a DJ & a drummer.
