Shodekeh is a professional beatboxer currently working in the Baltimore, MD area and abroad as he actively takes his craft wherever the passion for music brings him. His rhythmic travels include collaborating with the worlds of country, jazz, classical, and the visual arts through musical interpretations for exhibits at Baltimore Musuem of Art and The American Visionary Arts Musuem.
With his vocals alone he can embody the sounds of not only trap set drums, but everything from turntables, congas, didgeridoos, and sleigh bells. He also fuses his vocals with the simultaneous instrumentation of pan flutes and harmonicas and has accompanied for a wide variety of techniques including Ballet, Fire Movement, and Belly Dancing.
Shodekeh also serves as Music Faculty for The American Dance Festival @ Duke University and continues to be actively commissioned for original works of music by The Kennedy Center, The Conference on World Affairs @ The University of Colorado, and The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. He is also the Founding Director of "Embody", a Music Festival and Series of The Vocal Arts.
