I Heart Beatbox

Monday night I went to MoPitkins for a triple-bill celebration of hip hop and the human beatbox.

Baba Israel and Yako mix turntables, bass, didgeridoo, and vocal percussion to create what they call "Open Thought Music."

Yuri Lane performed excerpts from a beatbox play he wrote about life in Tel Aviv.

Y-Love is part of the new Jewish rapping craze. It was only a matter of time till it happened! I love the way this guy moves...not to mention his mad flow. He busts out rhymes in English, Arabic, Yiddish, Hebrew, and Aramaic.
