Basquiat Strings are a five piece string group with their own repertoire of originals (composed by cellist Ben Davis) and arrangements.

(Chris Parker) The group has been involved with various other live projects including that of Juliet Roberts and Andrew McCormack; and has recorded for Ty, Darren Emerson, Monica Vasconcelos (Nois 4) Border Crossing and the Ed Moto produced Jazzinho record.
