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. Let's investigate the brilliant design of our auditory and aural systems that allow us to create and listen to music. 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.
