Felix Zenger

Beatbox artist Felix Zenger has made a show-stopping entry into the scene during the past years. Praised by the likes of Pharrell Williams, rubbing shoulders with such talent as Kid Koala, Bahamadia and Blu, Zenger is also a YouTube hit thanks to his remarkable performance clips, with the most popular one amassing over 38 million plays. On his debut album “Won’t Say A Thing”, Zenger went way beyond the common conceptions of the beatbox as an art form.

What makes Felix Zenger an artist to keep your eye on is not just his extraordinary skill level, but his ability to put that talent into good use when aiming for his musical goal. As his debut album goes to show, what rules here is a fresh musical vision, with instrumental virtuosity added as a spice.

On stage, Zenger performs beatbox in its original form, engaging the audience with his strong stage presence. On occasion, Zenger also broadens his sound scape by effects and looping, performing vivid live versions of his album tracks either solo or with guests.

He has performed in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, China, Mexico, El Salvador, Russia, Canada, plus all over Europe and the Nordic countries.

In recent years, he has also made new openings by performing as a soloist with classical orchestras. In 2017, he composed a concerto for a beatboxer and an orchestra which premiered in the fall of 2017 with Tapiola Sinfonietta. A second studio album is also in the works.
