Collisions of Rhythm

Rhythmic Variety Duo

Biography

Collision of Rhythm is a duo comprised of tap-dancing classical virtuoso, Aaron Williams, and beatbox-juggling keynote speaker, Bronkar Lee. They have worked with companies like GoPro, Coca Cola, and Google, and have been featured on The Tonight Show, America’s Got Talent, and SuperBowl commercials. Both have achieved internet fame with “rhythmic” viral videos — Aaron, through his virtuosic rendition of Mario on Marimba (over 30 million views), and Bronkar, as the Beatbox Dad, through a video of him beatboxing with his son (over 144 million views).

Aaron and Bronkar first performed together onstage in a completely improvised moment during a TEDx event in Hollywood in 2013. They met backstage and knew they were musical soul brothers. Since then, they’ve performed entertainment shows, led educational outreach workshops, and given keynotes on collaboration and teamwork all across the U.S.

Though there are only two of them, they fill the stage as a 12-person ensemble would, moving from instrument to instrument with a high level of skill and diversity. What’s created is a richly explosive experience like nothing else out there — rhythm-centered, but also full of melodic movement and dynamic depth. With drumming, tap dancing, rhythmic juggling, marimba, piano, saxophone, flute and so much more, the show has been described as “Stomp meets Blue Man meets Cirque du Soleil.” The pure joy that music and rhythm has instilled within these two humans is extended to every audience member throughout the performance. Between choreographed musical pieces, there is audience interaction, humor, and personal stories that make this show all at once captivating, inspiring, and flat-out extraordinary. Read Less ^

Bronkar Lee and Aaron Williams (as Collision of Rhythm) have the magical combination of an on-stage performance background, keynote Collision experience, facilitation training, and award-winning teaching qualifications. With a deep understanding of what it takes to work with others, they have identified the specific components of what propels our collaborations out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary.

Ignited By Possibility

What if we faced it head-on with a growth mindset -- excited for opportunities and ignited by possibility? When there is transition and forward movement, we have the unique chance to become more adaptable, more flexible, and more valuable to our teams, peers, and organizations. Read More >
