Rahzel Brown is a seven-time nominated, two-time Grammy Award winning beat boxer and vocal percussionist and a member emeritus of The Roots. Rahzel doesn’t play any instruments… he is the instrument! He mastered, and then re-defined, the art of beatboxing, emerging as a true virtuoso in this quintessential musical art form. Rahzel’s singular ability to re-create full songs without instrumentation, sing a chorus and provide the musical melody simultaneously, and invoke a plethora of sound effects on a whim creates an inimitable visual and audio experience. He has been credited the first person to conquer the art of singing and beatboxing at the same time, a feat that has become a staple of the beatbox community.
In a conversation with Matt Ehlman, Rahzel will share his views on beatboxing as an artform, and discuss how music influences our lives and gave him his voice.
