Prelude from Bach Cello Suite No.1 - Kevin "K.O." Olusola


By Maddy Shaw Roberts

J.S. Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 has been given the beatboxing treatment by a champion cello-boxer.

Anyone who has ever tried to accompany themselves singing will know that musical multi-tasking is not an easy feat. But this guy just made it look *so* natural.

Kevin Olusola is a multi-talented cellist, and the official beatboxer of the Grammy Award-winning quintet Pentatonix. But he can also play a mean cello Prelude.

In this unique twist on the Prelude, Kevin beatboxes while playing Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major – and it sounds unbelievable. The remix was directed, produced, recorded and mixed by Endless Noise, a music and sound design company.

Find Kevin Olusola on Facebook and YouTube for more amazing cello-boxing.
