Beatboxing Buddhist Monk Performs Loop Machine Chant Remix

This is a video of 37-year old Japanese Zen Buddhist monk Yogetsu Akasaka layering sounds and chants all created with his own voice into this ‘Heart Sutra x beatbox live-looping remix’. Apparently prior to becoming a monk Yogetsu was a beatboxer, busker, and theater actor. Now he’s a beatboxer and monk. Me? I have always been and always will be– “A no-good scoundrel.” What? “A disappointment?” You know the whole self-deprecating thing only works when I say it, when you do it it’s just bullying.

    That’s some crazy soundscape, reminds me of some of the music from Oga’s Cantina on Batuu. I’m sure the Disney folk took a lot of cues from chants as theres definitely influence from traditional Mongolian music in Galaxy’s Edge as well. This guy is badass.
