Carnatic Beatbox, Thu 29th Jan 2015, 7.45pm

Dhruv Arts presents Carnatic Beatbox, a collaboration between Jyotsna Srikanth, a leading Carnatic violinist and Shlomo, the beat boxing star in this special concert featuring Indian and western percussion, piano, jazz trumpet and bass.

Jyotsna Srikanth is the most sought after South Indian violinist in Europe and composer known for her versatility and ability to collaborate with different genres seamlessly and with ease. Ms. Srikanth is featured in many major global music events and venues. Her violin playing has a nice blend of musical expression and emotion with good technique, a result of three ‘decades of experimentation’ as per a critic. Having played violin for nearly 200 Indian films, she is currently working on an Indian Violin concerto. Jyotsna is the Artistic Director of London International Arts Festival.

Shlomo is one of the world’s leading beatboxers who has worked for years to push the boundaries of beatboxing as an art form. In August 2004, Shlomo was invited by Icelandic singer Björk to beatbox on her all-vocal album Medulla. The track, ‘Oceania’, was commissioned to be performed at the Olympics Opening Ceremony in Athens. An estimated audience of 4.5 billion viewers saw this performance, making Shlomo the most heard beatboxer in history. As well as performing, recording and working on larger commissions, Shlomo heads up several outreach projects, using beatboxing as a tool to encourage young people to get into music. Shlomo is a Southbank Centre Artist in Residence. Visit for more details
