CTYP presents RupLoops, a fun hip-hop concert for the whole family! Rup Sidhu is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, producer and composer. Specializing in vocal percussion and live looping, his sound blends the rhythms of poetry and spoken word with a dynamic range of cultural hybridity; CTYP audiences know him from the music he created for our production Sultans of the Street.
RupLoops is an interactive, live looping show, using vocal percussion, rhythmic rhymes and an arsenal of eclectic instruments. Rup utilizes his diverse skills as a musician to create a pulsating, entertaining and engaging musical experience. He is a gifted educator and performer and has a deep passion for intercultural work and intercultural sounds. Through this show he hopes students will gain an understanding and appreciation of our universal language: music.
For almost a century we have been tuning into radios to be informed and entertained. RupLoops’ new show, The Human Radio, will take you on a journey of sound exploring anatomy, geography and culture. Through body percussion and beatboxing, Rup demonstrates and teaches how the human form is indeed a musical instrument. With a mix of hip-hop, blues and bhangra, The Human Radio tunes into themes of home, identity, culture, justice, dignity and celebration.
