Listen to this beatboxing Buddhist monk

Now for something completely different. Listen to Japanese Zen Buddhist monk Yogetsu Akasaka take beatboxing to a whole new place.


The 37-year-old went viral in May, after posting his "Heart Sutra Live Looping Remix," a video that's relaxing like ASMR, and engrossing like a DJ set. With the loop machine, he layers sounds and chants all coming from one instrument — his voice.
