Ukulele Beatbox Tutorial

April 11, 2017 at 01:13AM

Jody Kamisato and Jason Tom with this Ukulele Beatbox Collaborative Tutorial. An ukulele is a 4-string instrument that originated in Portugal and it was later introduced to the Hawaiian Islands during the plantation period and the ukuelele was adopted into our Hawaiian Music Culture throughout the Hawaiian Islands. It's an instrument that nearly all residents young and old of the Hawaiian Islands pick up and start playing or have at one point picked up playing and tried it. Beatboxing originates in the A Cappella vocal art tradition from the musical stylings and genre of jazz with scat singing and the urban hip-hop music culture and can be traced even further back to African cultural vocal traditions and languages. Jody and Jason had a great time with this collab…

Being the beat

Rahzel
Known as the Godfather of Noyze, two-time Grammy Award-winning vocal percussionist, Rahzel, has mastered, then redefined the art of beatboxing, emerging as a true virtuoso in this quintessential musical art form. Rahzel doesn’t play musical instruments – he is the instrument. His singular ability to re-create full songs without instrumentation, sing a chorus, and provide the musical melody simultaneously, all while providing a plethora of sound effects on a whim, creates an inimitable visual and sound experience. Rahzel is most popularly known as member emeritus of hip hop’s cutting edge band, The Roots, and has lent his …

Jason Tom at Children and Youth Day
Jason Tom at the Hawaii Children and Youth Day

I performed on October 6, 2013 at the Hawaii State Capitol for the 20th Annual Children and Youth Day. It was a challenging one since there were some sound technicalities and a neighboring event that drowned me out. I could barely hear myself while performing, audience could barely hear me as well, but I went with it nonetheless. Also featured Keanu in action. Here's a video that recently surfaced (mahalo to Natalie):

Shout out to Freelance brand! I was fitted with the Freelance brand Wavy snapback and its Been Wavy shirt combo.
