Here is a great clip of him beatboxing with legendary Egyptian drummer Said El Artist. Notice how the audience goes wild around 1:20 when he goes into the traditional Middle Eastern rhythms Beledi and Saiidi.

Thank you for posting Beatbox Guitar -- they are an amazing duo! Pete List (the beatboxer) in particular has been doing some extraordinary work with Middle Eastern music and rhythms. Here is a great clip of him beatboxing with legendary Egyptian drummer Said El Artist. Notice how the audience goes wild around 1:20 when he goes into the traditional Middle Eastern rhythms Beledi and Saiidi. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWl5ACqAms0

[[DB, good catch! It's fixed. Usually we get the "Brain" Lehrer Show... But Bryan Lair is a nice touch too. -BL Show-]]

Leonard Lopate heard about a song from "Jonathon Schartz"? I hope that isn't a reference to *Jonathan Schwartz,* who has worked at WNYC for more than 10 years! P.S. I like the Bryan Lair Show. ;-)
