Rolling Stone: Rahzel from The Roots and Jesse Europe Kwabi collaborate for an amazing new take on the classic 'Little Drummer Boy' as part of our Holiday Playlist.
Rahzel makes some noise
Being the beat
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…

Harry and Cheryl Salem are a powerhouse couple for Jesus, and their testimony of how God can bring victory through adversity is evident in their ministry. At a young age, Cheryl was involved in an accident that nearly took her life and left her crippled. After doctors told her she could never walk again, she defied all the odds and walked down the runway as she was crowned Miss America in 1980. Harry had a burdensome childhood at age 10 after his father passed away; leaving him with the mandate to be the man of the house for his mother and sisters. When both Harry and Cheryl encountered Jesus, their lives were never the same! You will be encouraged in the Word and strengthened in your fait…
Mr. Jason Tom the Human Beatbox of Hawai'i Nei Documentary
Black Rhythm is one of my understudies... he's a wonderful human beatbox to look out for... he's already doing big things and he's only been doing this professionally for four years and is far exceeding many world class beatboxers known today that have been around far longer. I coached him from the very beginning and watched him grow.. he's wise and humble and a great student, a wonderful human being... and a wonderful friend. Black Rhythm is a true role model for his people and culture!!! He is a wonderful human being!!!
Elaine Finnell (formerly known as Elaine Chao) is one of my earliest beatbox mentors. It's due to her inspirational Apollo live televised performance in 2003 that sparked an interest for me to pursue beatboxing professionally. Her snares, her mouth drumming, her scratches, crowd interaction is so on point!!! She was a co-worker of one of my first-cousins from the Bay Area.... who I am very close with. Elaine and I exchanged e-mails and she gave me wisdom and advice that it stuck with me forever. I apply everything she shared with me. It it weren't for her.. I wouldn't be the beatboxer that I am today. Thank you Elaine!!! You're the greatest female human beatbox of all time in my book!
June 10, 2016 is "National Beatbox Day" in honor to the creators and contributors of the Human Beatbox and to honor Darren "Buffy" Robinson aka The Human Beatbox aka DJ Doc Nice. Special thank you to the Brooklyn's Borough President Eric L. Adams for creating this platform and historic achievement. This is for Hip Hop Culture worldwide!!!
