Mohamed Belkhir doesn’t need a band, he only needs his voice.
Under the stage name MB14, the 28-year-old is taking the music world by storm. He is a multi-talented French musician, some of whom are self-taught. He started out focusing on beatboxing, but has since branched out into opera after taking on the role of an opera singer in the movie “Tenor.” To prepare, he took opera singing lessons, which helped broaden his field of work.
“Now I listen to opera almost every day”, Mohamed said. “I don’t want to think of myself as just a beatboxer anymore, it has limited me artistically. I want to use all my possibilities so as not to lock myself into a register.
Thanks to his impressive voice, Mohamed is able to create his own orchestra that includes both beatboxing and lyrical singing – talk about a unique combo! To achieve this on its own, it uses a loop station. This allows him to record and reproduce multiple layers of his own voice which together create a wonderful symphony that you would never guess came from the mouth of just one person.
