Record-breaking beatboxer SK Shlomo is launching a huge project to help kids and raise money for NHS Charities Together – and he’s teaming up with Summertown venue The North Wall Arts Centre to get Oxfordshire families involved.

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, which toured to The North Wall in February last year, 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.”

The North Wall is one of 80 music venues and theatres to simulcast the free weekly educational show on their digital platforms to reach thousands of homes worldwide. Shlomo 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 Radha.

To take part, live every Thursday at 2pm, visit beatboxadventures.com or via Facebook Live on Shlomo and The North Wall’s Facebook pages.
