The winners of the German Blues Challenge 2016 and Semi finalists in Memphis: “Chris Kramer & Beatbox`n`Blues“ have released a Video Clip in Memory of the great Bo Diddley on Facebook and Youtube. The video is released to mark the date June the 2nd, the day of Bo´s death that has its 9th anniversary in 2017, and it should serve as a reminder of our heroes that inspired us to make music ourselves, organize concerts and festivals and to just plain love music.
Very early on Bo Diddley has taken the Blues in a modern direction and with his music he build bridges to other musical genres. Today the German formation „Beatbox`n`Blues“ attempts to build a bridge from Blues to Hip Hop so a new generation can discover that music we all love so much, without forgetting about the old heroes.
