Thai jazz violinist, Volt W. Jingjit, Berklee graduate, will be touring in Bangkok this month and it’s the one performance you don’t want to miss!

This violin virtuoso was awarded awarded a scholarship from Berklee College of Music in 2015, and upon his graduation, he was accepted to the to Berklee Global Jazz Institute graduate program. Volt had performed in Asia, Europe, and The United States also sharing a stage and worked with some of the biggest names such as Jack DeJohnette, Esperanza Spalding, Jacob Collier, Gary Burton, Michael Gibbs, Bill Frisell, Paul Rishell & Annie Raines to name a few.

The first time I heard Volt was in 2015, with his blues-soul-funk band – The Vintagers, fronted by his brother Whim. I was simply blown away by the pure energy of his violin that was creating a unique sound and twists on timeless classics like Sam Cooke’s “You Send Me”, Clapton’s “Old Love”, Steve Wander’s “Isn’t She Lovely”, and more…

His sound simply transports you to another dimension where the power of music is the only thing that matters. It makes the time stop and washes all the worries away.

Volt has recently become a 3Dvarius ambassador, making his performance even more interesting with a 5-string line 3Dvarius violin.
