EVERYONE makes sounds with their mouths - whether it be talking, yawning, a huff of frustration or screaming for joy, we all use your vocal chords to express ourselves.

For Simon Shlomo Kahn, better known as Shlomo, he has carved a career out of using his vocals to produce sounds, even achieving a world record.

Now, the beatboxer is to pass on some words of wisdom with his Beatbox Adventure for Kids.

“I made the show years ago when I first became a dad,” Shlomo told the Gazette.

“Having to go off on tour and not being home all the time I thought ‘what can I do for bath time when I am away.’

“After workshopping some ideas of how to make it accessible to a wider audience, I performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe and it seemed to get a good reaction so I thought maybe this has some legs.”

This then developed into creating a full show, where the beatboxer demonstrates some of the techniques he uses to produce sounds using just his voice.

He added: “It is amazing to see the realisation on the children’s faces that they are making these noises and they always come away with massive smiles on their faces.”

Even though the target audience of the show is youngsters, Shlomo explains parents get just as much out of performance.

“A lot of the parents I see say that they used to enjoy going out dancing and raving, but don’t get the chance to because they have children,” the beatboxer explains.

“So something like this works perfectly as the children love it, but the parents are also really getting into it because they are sort of reliving their youth vicariously through their children.

“By the end of a session I always see these people build up some form of rhythm and you see people smiling at each other and starting to move their bodies.”

Shlomo burst into the mainstream collaborating with Björk, and then going on to perform with the likes of Damon Albarn, Lily Allen and Jarvis Cocker to Imogen Heap, Martha Wainwright and Rudimental.

Despite the standing ovations and the accolades, Shlomo said he would feel oddly empty inside and two years ago, he took a step back to work out what he wanted.

“I’d always been incredibly driven,” said the London-born musician.

“But ultimately that was at the expense of my mental health.

“There was a time when I stopped watching what was going on around me because they were getting these huge reactions.

“But then that reignited what I loved and when it got to the point of me seeing people and saying how are they doing that, I will find a way to do it or my version of it.”

Shlomo is inviting anyone aged one to 101 to become one of his sidekicks in a world of funny sounds and brilliant noises at The Forge on April 16.
