In a special treat for beatbox and body percussion fans, there will be not one but four chances to become emerged in the popular musical forms.

On March 8, Zenger will hold a workshop aimed at musicians, producers, composers and sound designers, sharing insights into his creative process, career, tours and new album.

Two days later, members of the public are invited to learn vocal percussion techniques, his trademark tricks and ways to become better at beatboxing.

Sheehan will hold a family-friendly body percussion tutorial on the 13th, teaching the best ways to clap, stomp and move in a fun, free workshop.

The visit will culminate in the Barebeat show on March 12, bringing together the two rhythm musicians for a performance in the inner courtyard with guest vocals from Joni in the Moon’s Joni Hogan.
