Shlomo's Beatbox Adventure for Kids is at The Dukes Lancaster on February 26.

He became artist in residence at London’s Southbank Centre, played the main stages at Glastonbury, won rave reviews for his autobiographical one-man shows and even became the subject of an award-winning feature documentary, The Beatbox Choir.

But everything changed at the age of 27 when he became a father. Frustrated and exhausted by late nights on the road, SK Shlomo started thinking about ways to teach his skills to the younger generation and so he devised Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventure For Kids.

The show became a phenomenal success, with five-star reviews and sellout shows from the Royal Albert Hall to the Edinburgh Festival.

At the start of 2020, lockdown forced Shlomo to cancel over 100 shows, instead, he created Homeskool Beatbox Adventures, a weekly interactive livestream empowering kids and their families to find their true voices and create their own music. For 30 minutes every Thursday, families around the world learned new vocal skills from SK Shlomo and his talented friends, including Bastille, KT Tunstall, Bill Bailey, Basement Jaxx, Jason Mraz and BBC Radio 1’s Dr Radha.

Over six weeks, the Homeskool Beatbox Adventures community created their very own charity single and music video featuring hundreds of families worldwide singing, beatboxing and performing together, raising over £3,000 for the NHS and Black Lives Matter. Prepare to witness the incredible energy of this superstar beatboxer as he sets out on the road for another round of mind-blowing beatbox adventures in 2022.

Visit here to see the live streamed version of the show which reached over 200,000 families worldwide, smashing the fundraising target for the NHS and the Black Lives Matter Foundation, and featuring guests like Bastille, Bill Bailey, Basement Jaxx and KT Tunstall.

The Dukes shows in Lancaster are at 11am and 2pm on Saturday, February 26. Tel: 01524 598500 or visit here
