Akim Funk Buddha
Josie Robertson Plaza: Lincoln Center Out of Doors
It's like "Stomp", but instead of garbage can lids and broom sticks, these Lords of the Larynx use only their vocal chords. Beatboxers create a human symphony of amazing sounds and rhythms that baffle the senses, manipulating their voices to emulate anything from the drone of a street sweeper to the strum of a guitar. You'll be looking for the band, the equalizer or the boom box when listening to the precise and true sounds, but look no further than the amazing performers from Beatboxer Entertainment.
From the streets of Bali to Carnegie Hall, from meditative throat singing to high-energy Hip Hop rhymes, Akim Funk Buddha creates borderless performance art, fusing sounds and movements. An avid world traveler and self-described old-school B-boy MC, he is known for his holistic approach to Hip Hop, drawing from a full spectrum of cultural traditions and artistic disciplines.
