“EVERYTHING is possible with your voice.”
Using your tough, lips, throat and voice is the beginning of beatbox music. Beatbox Allstars is a home for beatboxers in the Philippines. The group was formed last January 2017 founded by the first beatboxer in Cagayan de Oro, Mr. Ting Yap aka Tingbirds.
He started his beatboxing career back in 2006, influenced by Roxorloops, the beatbox star on You Tube in 2006. Tingbirds began to perform beatbox in various big events and music festivals in the city until he inspired a lot of Kagay-anons on his journey. By 2009, CDO Beatbox was born, a beatbox community in Cagayan de Oro that supports beatbox artists in town.
After a series of beatbox gatherings, jams and events, CDO Beatbox artists, named Christian John Tato aka Lepos, and Archimedes Bunga aka Rkem won the Regional Beatbox Competition in General Santos City which is the Mindanao Beatbox Battle Championship, participated by more than 30 cities to battle in one stage. The tandem Lepos & Rkem have been champions in consecutive years 2015 and 2016.

After this remarkable achievements of the roup, Ting Yap decided to extend the movement to the national level and continue to mold beatboxers around the country. In 2017, Beatbox Allstars started its vhannel on You Tube and began to produce Filipino beatboxers around Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
Today, the community just hosted the 1st Philippine Beatbox Battle Championship held in Davao City last May 25 and 26, 2018, participated by beatboxers from different cities in Philippines. Yap believes that there’s nothing impossible to create using your voice, as long as you learn to express and execute your sound.
