Kid & Kaila Beat Box Workshop
March 15, 2014 at 11am
With Kid Lucky & Kaila Mullady
Hailing from NYC the ‘beat rhyming’ duo of Kid Lucky and Kaila Mullady combine beatboxing, rapping, spoken word, scatting, and vocal sound effects into an awesome display of vocal abilities that translates into amazing songs and a good time! They explore all realms of American music: from hip hop and electronic music (like trap and techno), to funk, jazz, rock, and soul. Their signature technique is a new vocal style called beat-rhyming: the combination of beatboxing and rhyme flow or ‘floetry.’
