This Guy Can Beatbox While Playing The Recorder

and it’s insane

by jessica karl

Recorders usually bring to mind unsanitary mouthpieces and fourth graders playing “Hot Cross Buns.” But Cairo-based Medhat Mamdough takes the instrument to a new level and makes multitasking look easy. He artfully melds beatboxing with notes on the recorder in his YouTube video, “My War ‘Freestyle.’”

It seems as though Mamdough discovered his raw talent for recorder beatboxing a few months ago and has been posting jaw-dropping videos ever since. You’ll be playing his tunes on repeat because Mamdough’s skills are even more impressive than those of Cara Delevingne. Mad props, dude. 

It leaves us with one question: Why didn’t we learn the art of recorder beatboxing in elementary school music class?
