Pittsburgh's Antoniette Costa releases "Mr. Right" 

"Mr. Right" - Triptyq (Antoniette Costa, Tara Kamangar, Kevin "K.O." Olusola)

 Singer-songwriter Antoniette Costa has teamed up with Kevin “KO” Olusola (cellist-beatboxer/Pentatonix/ composer) and Tara Kamangar (pianist/violinist/composer) to form the trio Triptyq- a classical hip hop project.

 

Mr. Right

Their new single “Mr. Right” co-produced by James Poyser (The Roots) debuted #2 on the iTunes Classical Charts and the video has gained over 45,000 views in less than two days.

Antoniette first collaborated with Kevin Olusola on her original song “Void of a Legend” in 2011 making waves in hip hop and classical audiences for weaving the genres. As a follow-up they released “Stranded” inspired by the novel Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier with Tara. The trio caught the attention of The Recording Academy. After a showcase at the Grammy headquarters, they formed Triptyq and plan to release an album.
