BEATBOXING – THE FIFTH ELEMENT OF HIP HOP
Directed by Klaus Schneyder: 55 minutes, 2011, Documentary
The film celebrates the incredible art form of making music using only the human body through vocal percussion primarily involving the art of producing drum beats, rhythm, and musical sounds using one’s mouth, lips, tongue, and voice. Linked to the hip hop movement and stemming from the hardship of poverty and the lack of instruments, a pioneer was inspired to imitate drum rhythms with his mouth – his brilliance creating the term ‘Human Beatbox.’
The documentary features artists from New York, California, Florida, Spain, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Belgium, Canada, Austria and Germany, who demonstrate their amazing techniques which often seem impossible to audiences at first sight, but see for yourselves….
