Naturally 7:  Beatbox a Whole Band

The group Naturally 7 is one of the most amazing things I have heard and seen. These seven men are incredible singers. Also there is something else they are unbelievable at, and that is that they are able to play multiple instruments without even using an instrument. Now I know that sounds crazy but it is true. These seven men call it “vocal play,” which is the art of creating instrumental music with the human voice.

What these men are able to do is truly an art and an incredible skill. I have never seen anything like it. One of the men handles the tenor, the trumpet, and the scratching. Also the guitar and harmonica are played. Now honestly when watching this I didn’t believe it was real. That’s how good it sounded.

The reason this video is on TED is because of the art and the skill that it takes to do something like that. These men dont just have a good voice, but also they have a skill that very few people in the world have. What they do is very unique and some people might think impossible. Thats why this video is on TED.
