kevin olusola: hiphop/classical via cello + beatbox

Cara de Silva alerted us to this beauty of a video, of Yale student Kevin Olusola pushing the limits of a cello, and taking the music it makes up a totally new path. He bows, plucks and strums his cello, while accompanying it with beatbox, a hip-top derived use of voice as percussive/musical instrument. The music is so integral, it seems like the two sounds are really one. Then you realize that Olusola is the instrument.

As AnimexAngell commented: “Utilizing everything you’ve got to the max! This is great!”

Thanks Cara!!
