Youngsters learned about rap and beatboxing at two free workshops on Saturday.

They were coached by professional performers Xidus Pain and Skilly Skillz at the event, which was held at Wisbech’s Oasis Centre.

The pair are well-known across the country and were on hand to give demonstrations, top tips and teach the teenagers how to rap and beatbox.

Local talent was then given an opportunity to showcase their skills in The Oasis Slam on Saturday evening. It was open to all ages and invited youngsters to show their musical and dance moves.

The event and workshops were part of ‘Phonic’ a project funded by Youth Music and coordinated by The Garage in Norwich. The Wisbech activities were delivered in partnership with Beat This and ADeC.

The Phonic project has also involved a series of sessions at the Thomas Clarkson Academy where students have learnt about rap, beatboxing, lyric writing and event management.
