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.

Over the years I have seen all kinds of musical talents from different parts of the country and the world. I love the ones that bring something new or something old with a fresh twist on it, not straying too much from the origin. One day I came across a guy on a website that was a music artist. He was very different from the average music artists in that he performed without any background music. The music was actually coming from within him. He himself was actually a musical instrument.
