The Global Phenomenon of the Human Beatbox: Shodekeh & Северин Сигуней @ the Sayan Ring Festival in Abakan, Russia, 2012.
"Beatboxing fundamentally began in New York City in conjunction with the birth of the hip-hop subculture on the streets of Harlem. In the early to mid-eighties, three names stand out head and shoulders above the rest - Darren 'Buffy' Robinson, Doug E Fresh and Biz Markie. They are crowned as the first three pioneers of beatboxing in their own respective and innovative ways. Thanks to the internet, beatboxing has become a global phenomenon enjoyed by millions internationally." - Human Beatbox.com
