Modern Music Fusion
On April 14, 2011, a musician by the name of Kevin Olusola uploaded the following video to YouTube. The arrangement for cello and beatbox gives “Julie-O” by Mark Summer a different spin:
Kevin Olusola is an accomplished cellist, saxophonist, beatboxer, and composer. His personal website is http://kevinolusola.com/ . According to his biography, Kevin combines jazz, classical, and hip-hop influences with beatboxing to create his own special style of music.
I appreciate this artist’s creativity and how he finds ways to fuse seemingly disparate musical approaches into a cohesive whole. He’s making his own path, but building bridges in the process.
