The Beatbox House is a collective of world champion beatboxers including Amit Bhowmick, Chris Celiz, Neil “NaPoM” Meadows, Gene Shinozaki, and Kenny Urban. Beatboxing is growing into a global phenomenon branching out from its hip-hop roots. Through education, performance, and collaboration, the collective is rebranding the art as a new form of music, pushing the boundaries of the possibilities of the human voice. They were recently featured in the New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2023/01/21/nyregion/beatbox-house.html?smid=url-share) and represented the U.S. State Department with a tour of Indonesia and Singapore through the storied American Music Abroad Program. For one night only, learn more about this growing art form and these pioneering artists.
History of The Beatbox House has received Works & Process LaunchPAD residency support at ArtYard (2024), Chautauqua Institution (2023), and Guild Hall William P Rayner Artist-in-Residence program (2023), and grants from New Music USA and Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.
