SK Shlomo is a world record-breaking beatboxer who makes all kinds of music using just his mouth and a mic.
Join this sonic superhero and become one of his sidekicks in a world of funny sounds, brilliant noises and cool music at The Curve on Wednesday 19 February at 1pm.
Shlomo’s breathtaking vocal skills gained him early recognition as an internationally acclaimed beatboxer.
“Beatboxing is the art of creating unbelievably rich music using nothing but your voice” says Shlomo. “Beatboxers can create the sound of a full orchestra or electronic track - the drums, the keyboards, the basslines, all performed using nothing but a mouth and a mic.”
“The kid’s good. Jaw-droppingly good.” The Guardian
SK Shlomo first burst in to the mainstream collaborating with Björk and performing with famous fans from Damon Albarn, Lily Allen and Jarvis Cocker to Imogen Heap, Martha Wainwright and Rudimental.
As the first ever World Looping Champion, he taught his friend Ed Sheeran some tricks. He is Artist in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre, has played the main stages at Glastonbury, won rave reviews for his autobiographical one-man shows and even had a feature film made about him.
"Shlomo had the audience eating out of his hand from the start... the parents were having just as good a time as their kids – maybe even better!" ***** BroadwayBaby
