Beatboxer SK Shlomo is bringing back his five-star show, Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventure For Kids, for a limited run in 2022, including two daytime appearances at the Dukes in Lancaster.

Shlomo, who makes music with his mouth, burst into the mainstream after appearing on BBC2’s Later… With Jools Holland, collaborating with Björk and performing with famous fans from Damon Albarn, Lily Allen and Jarvis Cocker to Imogen Heap, Martha Wainwright and Rudimental.

He became the first-ever World Looping Champion and taught his friend Ed Sheeran some tricks. 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.
