Biography

There are more than 1 artists with this name.

[1] Shlomo is a human beatbox artist from Leeds. He has worked with artists such as Björk and his own hip hop crew Foreign Beggars. He attended the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe.

He is known for pioneering original beatboxing techniques including his 2-mic trancebox routine which won him widespread respect in the international beatbox community.

Shlomo is also one of the key people behind the global beatbox portal humanbeatbox.com.

In August 2004, Shlomo was invited by Icelandic singer Björk to beatbox on her all-vocal album Medulla. The track, Oceania, was composed as a commission by the Olympic Games Committee, and was performed at the Opening Ceremony in Athens. An estimated audience of 4.5 billion viewers saw this performance, making Shlomo the most heard beatboxer in history (although most would not have realised that the drum sounds were vocal). The performance was also nominated for a Grammy.

Shlomo then went on to tour the UK, Europe and Canada with London Hip Hop act Foreign Beggars, before making a solo appearance on Later… with Jools Holland in late 2005 (video).

He is now rumoured to be working on a solo album due in 2007.

As of 2007, Shlomo formed and performs with what is considered to be the first beatboxing choir known as the Vocal Orchestra - who now perform together as Shlomo and the Vocal Orchestra . Their most recent performance to date is the Greenbelt Festival 2009.
