Midé Naike is a beatboxer / vocal percussionist from Cambridge. He works as a full-time performer in Birmingham-based a cappella group The Sons of Pitches, who won BBC’s The Naked Choir in 2015, and are the current House Band on Sky1’s “Sing: Ultimate A Cappella”. He has performed workshops to thousands of people in Hong Kong, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and Slovakia. The Sons of Pitches will be on tour this Autumn.
Midé’s workshop will give people a detailed and thorough insight into how beatbox and vocal percussion is learnt and practised. Using his background in a cappella music Midé will go through the full warm-up process, and also go through ways in which the human voice can mimic multiple instruments and sound effects, all of which are directly applicable to beatbox. Finishing with simple beatbox soundscapes and hopefully some battles!
