May 10, 2021
Join Brook Lee and Lanai Tabura as they interview local celebrities, artists, community leaders and more on this fun, new weekly program dedicated to anything and everything unique to life in Hawaii.
Episode #34 – Featuring Niko Del Rey – Beatboxer for ‘The Filharmonic’ A Capella Group
Niko Del Rey is the beatboxer for the a capella group, The Filharmonic. His fat beats can only be rivaled by his long, luscious hair. You may have heard others call him “The Bad Boy” of the group but that is only because he marches to the beat of his own drum (pun intended). In actuality Niko isn’T a law breaker but an aspiring Law Enforcement Officer with his degree in Political Science that he earned from the University of California, Riverside. You can see his hip hop rooted personality through his unique style of beatboxing and his street inspired fashion choices. The group also considers him the best dancer which could be a result from his love of 90’S Hip Hop. When he isn’t working on his rhythms you can find him working it out at the gym.

The Filharmonic, an LA-based a cappella group of Filipino-American youngsters who were featured in NBC’S hit musical competition, The Sing-Off, has much to sing about. The 5-piece vocal group made the semi-finals, joined The Sing-Off national tour, and were featured in the Universal Pictures hit movie, Pitch Perfect 2, setting off a viral sensation after their Late Late Show appearance. In 2016, The Filharmonic brings their unique blend of hip hop, pop and 90’S nostalgia to more than 150 college stages nationwide and was named the #1 college booked entertainment group of the year.
