Stereognosis presents

Bataco & Miles Jay

 
 
Epic heavyweight beatboxing, live looping, and ancient instrumentation from the Middle East and Africa.  Experience the 2017 Asian Beatbox champion from Japan (with Grand Beatbox Battle showcases in 2018 and 2019) live in concert with upright bassistME/NA instrumentalist, and looping artist Miles Jay (click here for bio).  Witness a mind-blowing demonstration of how fluently modern urban beats converse with traditional folkloric melodies and rhythms from the Cradle of Civilization.
 
This performance will represent a live premiere of songs from the new studio album, Departure, which was recorded and mixed by Phillip Broussard, and mastered by Grammy-Award-winning engineer Mike Bozzi (album press release here).  This album was created by bringing together 4 international champion beatboxers with 6 traditional string and percussion masters from across the Levantine corridor and Horn of Africa (most of whom had never met before, and almost none of whom spoke the same language).  Using music as a common language, the artists of this project aimed to illustrate and emphasize the shared origins of the human species.  We welcome visitors to visit our Facebook event page, follow Stereognosis on Instagram, and check out official Stereognosis website for more information.
