Beat Box

I don’t think I should be proud of the fact that the first time I ever was introduced to beatboxing was during a bomb scare at my high school when all of the students were piled into the auditorium as a sort of quarantine. The good news is a few students decided to make the most of it and enlightened me with their entertainment. Since those days beatboxing has made it’s way into mainstream music thanks to Justin Timberlake (amongst others), and here in Baltimore you can regularly hear Shodekeh in action (including at the Creative Alliance where he’s an artist in residence).

Coming up next week you can catch the sounds From Tel Aviv to Ramallah: a beatbox journey with Yuri Lane live at CENTERSTAGE.
