Bay TV meet beatboxer Shlomo at Voices FestivalBy Eamonn Lavery
Dubbed "the Harry Potter of beatbox" by radio DJ Tim Westwood, World Loopstation Beatboxing Champion Shlomo has had a remarkable career.
He collaborated with Bjork on a song performed by the mystical Icelandic songstress at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympics, and has since worked with artists as varied as London hip hop cohort Foreign Beggars, The Mighty Boosh and (perhaps most weirdly of all) BRIT winning crooner James Morrison.
Simon 'Shlomo' Khan has curated events at Glastonbury, written and performed a two-week stint of one-man theatre shows at the Edinburgh Festival to capacity audiences, and held two Guinness World Records for World's Largest Beatbox Ensemble.
The beatboxer was in town to perform as part of the Voices Festival, run by Sense of Sound choir, and Bay TV managed to catch up with him before his show.
