So here’s something a little different. Yogetsu Akasaka is a 37 year old Zen Buddhist monk who has been causing a stir by making music to meditate to on YouTube.
Only rather than using whale sounds and rainsticks, Yogetsu uses a microphone, a sampler, and a single instrument; his voice.
I always had a love for music and wanted to continue my passion even after becoming a monk. Which is why I had decided to take on beatboxing again…I am honoured to be able to combine my passion with my religious beliefs, and that this has impacted people around the world.
