On a Baha'i Beatboxing: Shades of Bobby McFerron

A Baha'i beatboxing. Thanks, Afsin, for this! -gw
Beatboxing is not that different from normal human speech. You only have to start developing a rhythmical feeling and you have to stress the pronunciation of certain letters and vowels until you can talk in the beatbox language. Listen to some music by famous beatboxers such as Killa Kela, Rahzel, Roxorloops, Biz Markie, Doug E. Fresh, Matisyahu, Max B, Blake Lewis (American Idol finalist), or even Bobby McFerrin (The artist of 'Don't Worry Be Happy.' He created the whole song using only his voice dubbed on different tracks to create many different 'instruments'). Many of the techniques that are used by these beatboxers are explained here.
