Enjoy post-concert beats in Bar Thalia with a DJ set by Rahzel.

 

Two-time Grammy Award-winning Vocal Percussionist Rahzel has mastered, then re-defined, the art of beatboxing in the new millennium, emerging as a true virtuoso in this quintessential musical art form. Rahzel is most popularly known as member emeritus of hip hop's cutting edge live band, The Roots, but has lent his talents to musical artists of all genres.

Known for his ability to sing or rap while simultaneously beatboxing, as evidenced in his performances of "Iron Man" and his signature song "If Your Mother Only Knew", his talents are showcased in various solo projects as well as on Ben Harper's 2000 single, "Steal My Kisses." He also provided his own voice on video games SSX and SSX Tricky.

A highly sought after vocalist, Rahzel has collaborated by touring, recording, producing, writing or performing with such artist as Angelique Kidjo, Beastie Boys, Beck, Ben Harper, Bjork, Bobby McFerrin, Boosty Collins, Brandford Marsalis, Christina Aguilera, Common, Cee Lo Green, Dave Chapelle, Erykah Badu, Everlast, Faith no More, John Legend, Lou Reed, Michelle N'Degeocello, Mike Patton, Maroon 5, Mix Master Mike, Methods of Mayhem, Nona Hendrix, Norah Jones, Patti Smith, Phillip Glass, Sean Paul, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Toots and the Maytals, The Crystal Method, and The Who.
