Rooted in the belief that music is an essential facet of human life, Sō Percussion enthusiastically pursues a growing range of social and community outreach.
Shodekeh has made tremendous musical strides as a highly adept beatboxer, vocal percussionist, composer, and breath artist who pushes the boundaries of the human voice within and outside the context of hip hop music and culture.
