Following Shlomo’s sold out tours Mouthtronica and Ministry of Mouth, the award winning looping artist and Word Record Holding beatboxer returns with his brand new interactive eargasmic experience: Human Geekbox. Shlomo’s first two solo shows sold out gaining 5 star reviews and a loyal following.
Shlomo wants you to join him in a beatbox journey to “Planet Geek” and back as he explores the art and science of “geekdom” and the music of human voice. It is your chance to join Shlomo as he recreates his metamorphosis from wannabe astrophysics geek to mouth music megastar!
Shlomo is also using social media to call for talented local artists to join him onstage and help create something that has never been done before. During the tour, Shlomo will be setting himself the Charity Collaborator Challenge: to co-write, perform and release a new song in a day with a local artist ineach town on the tour. After each show, the new song will be released as a charity download with all proceeds to War Child, creating a 15-track charity album by the end of the tour.
All proceeds from Shlomo’s Charity Collaborator Challenge will go to UK chairty War Child, which protects the innocent victims of war. Children don’t start wars. Every child has a right to a childhood and an education. Those rights are protected by international conventions and national laws. They’re supposed to protect children from the carnage of war but too often they don’t. So War Child are working hard to persuade governments and decision-makers at the local, national and international level to meet their responsibilities and keep children safe.
Since taking up beatboxing in 2002, Shlomo has won global acclaim and worked with some of the biggest names in music including Bjork, Damon Abarn, Jarvis Cocker, Martha Wainwright, Imogen Heap, The Specials, DJ Yoda and Bill Bailey. In the process he has consistently pushed the boundaries of beatboxing, bringing the art form to new and unexpected audiences through such diverse collaborations.
