Cellojoe (USA) + Indigo Rising
Joey Chang aka CelloJoe is the world's only beatboxing, long distance bicycling, looping cellist. He is the wildest beatboxing cellist in the west. By combining cello with beatboxing, he has created a unique genre: Classical Hip Hop.
CelloJoe records live on stage with a loop pedal and produces intricate tapestries of harmony, melody, and rhythm. His beatboxing (vocal percussion) and funky cello grooves form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics and his music spreads love, joy, laughter and conscious vibrations.

Current core members are Dayelle, Nastaij and Emerald They perform regularly around Melbourne, joined by DJ Kayboku and Matt Charles on trumpet.
