Israelis Turn Beatboxer Pro

Even if Hebrew-language skills still elude him

Print Email

South African native King Cano Huricane Kwa-Zulu spent 15 years traveling the world and beatboxing for handouts. Once he got to Israel, where he’s now settled, the reactions of fans convinced him to go pro. “People loved it,” he tells Haaretz. “They said chaval al ha’zman, chaval al ha’zman. I don’t even remember how they say it—it’s just a word that means super amazing, great.” Well, no. It’s actually three words that mean “too bad about the time,” or, more colloquially, “time’s a wasting.” But the point’s the same: get on with your career! Which he did, thanks to supportive Israelis. And, anway, it’s the beats that are his majesty’s forte—listen to them yourself at around minute two of this video.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
