Description

The Office for the Arts at Harvard Learning from Performers program and the Harvard Ed Portal are proud to present a screening of American Beatboxer followed by a discussion with producer Rich McKeown and executive producer and beatboxer Chesney Snow.

Documenting one of the most neglected genres of hip hop culture, American Beatboxer depicts the first-ever American Beatbox Championship. The art of beatboxing is vocal percussion: producing drum sounds and beat patterns using the lips, tongue, mouth, throat, and voice. Contestants of all races and from all over the United States competed in the 2010 Championship, with the film portraying the artistry and dedication of the eight finalists.

Just one day later, don't miss the beatboxing workshop featuring Chesney Snow, award-winning actor, beatboxer, poet, musician and songwriter, on Saturday, October 21 at 3 PM at Lowell Lecture Hall, 17 Kirkland Street, Cambridge.
