As you may know, I’m a fan of beatboxing, and I’ve posted a couple videos of Daichi, Japanese Beatboxer, before.

Well, t’is the season, and he’s produced another video with a holiday message for everyone. [via BoingBoing]

D7 Fresh A’capella

Posted in General with tags , , , , , on Monday, 8 June 2009 by Deems

I’ve just heard of a local, Cape Town based group called D7. They’re seven young guys that perform a mix of a’capella and beatboxing. I wish I had heard about them sooner as I would have loved to attend one of their live gigs. I’ve just listened to a few of their sample tracks on their website and I’m seriously impressed.

Think beatbox, think up beat, think fresh harmonies delivered to you by seven of Cape Town’s sexiest musicians and you have D7, the a’capella group that is harmonising their way on to stages everywhere. They will have your feet tapping, your lips moving and your hips grooving to the familiar sounds of Billy Joel, Michael Jackson, The Chiffons and The Temptations. Their take on contemporary tunes from Coldplay and Goldfish is fresh and exciting and definitely worth the standing ovations they have been receiving from audiences all over Cape Town.

South Africa has recently started auditioning for people to attend the new show South Africa’s Got Talent. Listening to these guys and seeing them perform I have no doubt that South Africa really *does* have talent. Well done guys, keep it up.

I’m really impressed by a’capalla music and beatboxing and this great combination of both makes for really enjoyable listening. And for the ladies, well, just take a look at their bio pics for yourself, you decide.

You can also follow them on Twitter.

Below is a short mashup clip of some of their performances showing off their talent. Oh, if you didn’t know, you can hire them for your own private party too.

My brother just sent me a link of this 17-year old girl, Julia Dales, from Canada, beatboxing. Now I’ve seen some impressive beatboxing, even beat-boxing while playing the flute – but this girl’s got talent! Check it out. In fact, she won the Online Beatboxing Championship this year! You can see the other runners up videos here.

Here she is performing at a talent show – girlz got skillz!
