(Video link here.) This loving competition between St. Louis-based beatboxer Nicole Paris and her dad, who taught her the basics — between mentor and apprentice —is filled with wonder and beauty,from the way mouth and vocal cords transform into wildly expressive instrument…

to her father’s clear enjoyment of his daughter’s way-amazing talent…

to Nicole’s seriously-inspired riffs that make us feel she’s accessing another realm.
