After becoming the champion at the King of the Jam beatboxing competition in London, Guinness World Record holder, Shlomo, became well recognised for his original beatboxing techniques and talent. In 2004, Shlomo collaborated with Björk on her song ‘Oceania’, which was later performed at the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Athens. This performance reached an estimated 3.9 billion people around the world and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Being a favourite on the UK Festival Scene, he’s performed at festivals including Latitude, Bestival, Glastonbury and Lovebox, and has collaborated with global stars such as Ed Sheeran, James Morrison, Jason Mraz, Jarvis Cocker, DJ Yoda and Martha Wainwright. The Guardian said “the kid’s good. Jaw-droppingly good”. http://www.shlo.co.uk
