“The Artizans have mastered the merging of classical and modern, resulting in an authentic blend of old and new; and have challenged basic music genres to create their own label of sound.” (Adam not Eve)
Josephine & The Artizans are a London based HipHopera band that consist of classical strings, operatic vocals, heavy beats and energetic rap. The group blend Classical music with HipHop and Rock to create a unique, fresh and innovative sound.
Classically trained Josephine was growing increasingly tired of the cultural gap between the pop-scene and classical world, so she decided to create something which is neither classical or commercial, but a blend of both.
