It seems Kawehi’s been busy taking her talents worldwide. The local beatboxer and loop master found internet fame a few years ago after her YouTube videos went viral. Last year, she became a walking music machine after recording herself on a musical jaunt down Mass Street in Lawrence. It involved strapping on her gear and performing one of her loop-heavy songs live.
Though it’s complicated, the benefit of a compact setup like that is you can play just about wherever you want. So Kawehi took a stab at live-looping while on holiday in Rome with her original song “On the Radio.” Since the music is running through her headphones, and not on a speaker, most of the people on the street pass her by and pay no mind.
