The State Department sends musicians from all genres — from jazz to bluegrass to hip hop — to places where people don't have many opportunities to meet performers from America.

And this year, the Brooklyn-based group the Beatbox House will travel to Asia for beatbox competitions, workshops and collaborations with local artists.

The Beatbox House has five core members: Gene Shinozaki, Kenny Urban, NaPoM, Amit and Chris Celiz. Celiz and Shinozaki join us now.

This segment aired on March 8, 2023.
