Tom Thum- The Orchestra in my mouth

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to see this beatbox performance by Tom Thum at TEDx Sydney, and I think you should too.
Thum hails from Brisbane and performs in the hip- hop circus crew, ‘ Tom Tom Crew.’ He won the team battle in the World Beatbox Championships in 2005 with Joel Turner and came second in the Scribble Jam Beatbox Battles in 2006. He teaches hip hop around Australia.
By the end of this talk, Thum has reproduced everything from the didgeridoo to Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean.’ He surely is deserving of the Guardian’s description of him;
‘Tom Thum appears to have swallowed an entire orchestra and several backing singers.’
