Dallas String Quartet Electric's a cover of "Despacito," posted last summer on YouTube, has more than 2.2 million views. Inspired by that success, the group released a new video with a cover of "Girls Like You" by Maroon 5 featuring Cardi B. Members of DSQ Electric posed with exotic cars and shot scenes on rooftop bars around Dallas.
Its name conjures visions of the traditional foursome that it has long been, performing renowned classical music compositions for guests at elegant galas, weddings, and even for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
Music is a universal language. The Dallas String Quartet, with its diverse ensemble of musicians and electric string instruments, transcends genre and gives contemporary music a classical, resonating dialect all its own.
