“It is so special being back on tour. It’s been really emotional. In fact, it’s been absolutely glorious,” famous beatboxer SK Shlomo says, as he hits the road once more with his sellout show Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventure For Kids, coming to The Mill in Banbury and the Pegasus in East Oxford.
Yes, SK Shlomo is back with his award-winning, sell-out live show and it’s time to witness the incredible energy of this superstar beatboxer once more as he makes his long-awaited return to the stage.
So what can we expect? “The show is really interactive. You’ll learn how to use your voice, how to make music in new ways and how important it is to express yourself and not be afraid to be different from others,” he says.
The world record-breaking beatboxer adds: “It actually feels like it did when I first started doing shows as a teenager and I was just giddy with every single opportunity to get on a mic.
“It feels like that again and audiences feel like that again. They just seem to be so grateful for anything that they can do to get out of the house and communicate.”
“the whole motive behind the show is to get kids to feel confident and empowered”
Creating the incredibly successful Homeskool Beatbox Adventures during lockdown, the weekly interactive livestream empowered kids and their families to find their true voices alongside his talented friends Bastille, KT Tunstall, Bill Bailey, Basement Jaxx, Jason Mraz and BBC Radio 1’s Dr Radha for charity.
So did the break make SK Shlomo appreciate his job more? “Absolutely, and although I was proud of all the projects and charity funding, getting back on stage and just witnessing the audience’s energy is just really magical and special.
“I just feel incredibly lucky that I have a job that involves bringing young people together and showing them that you can be powerful and different and feel special. That’s the whole motive behind the show – to get kids to feel confident and empowered.”
“In the show I talk about how different and how strange I felt as a kid and how I didn’t feel like I could fit in and how I had to hide who I really was until I found the music. That became my way out. It’s all about being real, being true and being your amazing individual self.”
