The Boxettes

The Boxettes

We’ve got our hands on 3 pairs of tickets to giveaway for an amazing gig from The Boxettes (who we interviewed a few weeks ago) on 2nd December!

The Boxettes are an all-female vocal group based in London . Their distinctive sound makes fine use of the complementing styles of their voices: Alyusha, Yvette, Neo and Kate, and current World Female Beatbox Champion Bellatrix- all combining to evocative and powerful effect.

Since forming at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2007, the band have played nearly every festival in England, put on several shows in France, and toured India. Closer to home, The Boxettes have put on shows at some of London’s finest venues, including Ministry of Sound and the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The Boxettes have built up a fierce reputation in the past year, establishing themselves on the Chai Wallahs 2010 tour as one of the most exciting emerging bands in the UK.

The Boxettes have an unconventional a-capella sound with tight beatbox work set against dreamy, sundrenched harmonics- as each of the girls take turns in either narrating over a melody, providing chord work, beatboxing or fx sounds with their mouths. The Boxettes are by now well used to the expressions of disbelief in audience faces- the extended vocal techniques of their five members combining to elicit an enormous sound, as visceral as it is delicate, performed with swagger as well as good nature.

Having started with a focus on Jazz interpellation, the band soon evolved and begun incorporating elements of hip-hop, drum and bass, motown and soul. These are yarns to recount, folk tales and fables of love lost, hearts crushed and empowered, made for live recital in a soulful hip-hop.

For your chance to win 1 of 3 pairs of tickets, simply answer the following question by 29th November 2011:

Who is the current number 1 female beat boxing champion of the world?
