Humble G is “just a humble guy,” but when he puts a violin on his shoulder, he is  transformed into the powerful musician known as ‘Humble G tha Fiddla.’

Humble G is a self-taught violinist and an alumnus of the Cleveland School of the Arts.

He has charted over 500 performances nationwide and has even played for President Barack Obama.

When Humble G performs with The Afripeans, the group combines his vibrant European strings with rhythmic African drums to create a style of music they call “Afripean Music.”

This group’s mission is to change ‘hip hop’ to “Hip Hope.”

Humble G tha Fiddla’s debut album, “Street Blues,” will be coming out this summer.

He performs solo and with the Afripeans all over northeast Ohio.
