Guinness world record holder and human beatboxing champion Shlomo has begun a project titled Voctronica which will create India’s first all-vocal beatboxing orchestra. Voctronica has been conceptualized by the British Council and has been organized in association with Zomba. Scribe’s lead vocalist Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy will head the project.
Presented by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) and Ministry of External Affairs & SEHER, the annual rock music festival, South Asian Bands Festival, began 2 December at the Purana Qila in Delhi and will go on for three days.
It’s an interesting month for music fans who like their books. This December there are two book releases with music connections scheduled for release. While one book is written by an author deeply entrenched in the current indie scene, the other is about a music scene that was as indie as it got, back in the early half of the 20th century.
In a new project they’re calling Split Featuring India, Mumbai-based alternative band Split have invited fans to send in vocal samples which they plan to use in one of the songs from their work-in-progress album.
