Acclaimed beatboxer SHLOMO, and his incredibly energetic show, is like nothing you have seen before - jaw dropping, inspirational and totally absorbing.
A Guinness World Record breaker, Shlomo gave up astrophysics to perform his amazing vocal pyrotechnics. It was a good move. Since then he has won global acclaim and worked with some of the biggest names in music including Bjork, Damon Albarn, Martha Wainwright, Basement Jaxx and The Specials. In the process he has continually pushed the boundaries of beatboxing, bringing the art form to new and unexpected audiences.
Shlomo first found critical acclaim as a beatboxer aged 18 when he began touring with the award winning multinational hip hop group Foreign Beggars. Soon after, he was collaborating with Bjork on her vocal album Medulla. After appearing on BBC2’s Later with Jools Holland, he formed the pioneering beatbox group "Shlomo & the Vocal Orchestra" and gained international recognition through The Beatbox Choir, a TV documentary following the journey of the group’s inception to their sold out debut show.
Shlomo is a firm favourite on the festival scene, bringing out guests like Ed Sheeran, Lily Allen, Jarvis Cocker and Rudimental at his Glastonbury shows.
Since winning the World Loopstation Championships at the NAMM conference in LA, Shlomo has been in high demand as an authority and speaker on technology and creativity. He has spoken at international events including TEDx, CDI (Mexico), ITV’s Big Think, Roundhouse Rising, MusicTechFest, MGX (Microsoft USA), WIRED, Accenture FY17 Conference and Conde Nast Digital Day (Moscow).
His latest undertaking is delving into the world of hackers and programmers, and he is completely reconstructing his live performance rig. By coding his own customised software instrument, Shlomo continues to innovate, and push the boundaries of the human voice, live looping and realtime manipulation of sound.
As both a solo artist and a bandleader, Shlomo’s live performances never cease to amaze and are not to be missed.
