Friday Fave: Flute Beatboxing

I stumbled upon this YouTube video a couple weeks ago, and I was completely mesmerized. I think beatboxing is an amazing skill, so to throw a flute into the mix is pretty gosh-darn impressive. The floutist's name is Greg Patillo, and he is part of a group called PROJECT, whose sound is self-described as "a fusion of jazz, hip-hop, and world music - balanced out by a sincere allegiance to their classical roots." You can read more about PROJECT and the other group members on their website.

This is the perfect anecdote to any child who thinks playing an instrument isn't "cool" - as a child of the '80s, let me just say that it doesn't get much cooler than Inspector Gadget, especially when its theme is beatboxed on the flute. If you like this video, be sure to check out the theme to Super Mario Brothers and Sesame Street!
