The use of human voice as percussion instruments in music is not a new concept. It has existed in some music cultures for a long time. However, it does not become a trend in pop culture until the 1980's when such technique was coined the term "BEATBOXING."
It doesn't take too long for beatboxing to become an important element in hip-hop culture. Before we learn the basic of beatboxing and create our own patterns, shall we see a performance by a master beatboxer, Hikakin from Japan.
