Lincoln Drill Hall teams up with acclaimed beatboxer for livestream show

Record-breaking beatboxer SK Shlomo is launching a huge project to help kids and raise money for NHS Charities Together.

Homeskool Beatbox Adventures is a weekly livestreamed interactive show empowering kids and their families to find their true voices and create their own music.

For 30 minutes every Thursday, families around the world will learn new vocal skills from SK Shlomo, the critically acclaimed world-champion beatboxer who has previously collaborated with Bjork, Ed Sheeran and Lily Allen, played at Glastonbury and broken world records with his jaw-dropping vocal gymnastics.

Inspired by the success of his critically acclaimed tour show, Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventures For Kids, he wants to teach families in quarantine how to become Superstar Beatboxers and has set up a JustGiving campaign to try to raise £2500 for NHS Charities Together in the process.

Each week, SK Shlomo will set families creative challenges to raise money by sharing performance videos of their new skills using the hashtag #beatboxadventures.

Over the course of the 6 weeks, the Homeskool Beatbox Adventures community will create an anthem of their own, with its own music video featuring hundreds of families worldwide singing, beatboxing and performing together to celebrate music and to support the frontline workers on whom we all rely so much during this difficult time.

“It’s a show about believing in yourself,” says Shlomo. “Finding confidence in your own voice is extremely empowering. That’s even more important when so many of us are feeling disconnected – we don’t know how we can help the world. This project can bring people together, connect the world up and raise funds for the heroes on the frontline who we appreciate so much.”

In order to involve as many families as possible SK Shlomo has partnered up with over 80 music venues and theatres to simulcast the free weekly educational show on their digital platforms to thousands of homes worldwide. He will also be joined by one of his talented friends each episode including Bastille, KT Tunstall, Bill Bailey, Basement Jaxx, Jason Mraz and BBC Radio 1’s Dr Rahda.

Among those venues he’s teamed up with is Lincoln Drill Hall whose CEO Chris Kirkwood said: “At this time, all venues are trying creative ways to keep engaging their audiences. How can we stay together when we’re all apart?

“We are delighted to be able to work with the Beatbox Adventures team to host this fantastic project live each week on our Facebook Page. It’s a great way for families to come together and learn new skills whilst also contributing to a fantastic cause.”

The livestreams take place weekly 1t 2pm From Thursday 7 may.
