RupLoops is an interactive, live looping performance, using vocal percussion, rhythmic rhymes and an arsenal of eclectic instruments from around the globe. Rup utilizes his diverse skills as a musician to create a pulsating, entertaining and engaging musical experience. He is a gifted educator and performer and has a deep passion for intercultural work and intercultural sounds.

For almost a century we have been tuning into radios to be informed and entertained. RupLoops’ new show The Human Radio will take you on a journey of sound exploring anatomy, geography and culture. Let’s investigate the brilliant design of our auditory and aural systems that allow us to create and listen to music. Through body percussion and beatboxing, Rup demonstrates and teaches how the human form is indeed a musical instrument. With a mix of hip-hop, blues and bhangra, the Human Radio tunes into themes of home, identity, culture, justice, dignity and celebration.


Rup Sidhu is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, producer and composer. Specializing in vocal percussion and live looping, his sound blends the rhythms of poetry and spoken word with a dynamic range of cultural hybridity. Inspired by folk and classical forms of music from around the world, his musical expressions can range from groove oriented hip hop beats, to contemporary fusions of classical ragas; scores for the National Film Board of Canada and remixes of vintage bollywood tunes, to experimental compositions for dance and theatre productions. Rup has facilitated and taught musical programs in universities, public schools, youth prisons, and communities throughout Canada, USA, UK, and India. Rup has produced fourteen albums with emerging artists, including American Pie, Shane Koyzan’s debut release. Current collaborative projects include: Lapis, Blue God and the Serpents, Language of Rhythm, and Metaphor. Rup’s solo live looping show, RupLoops, has toured over 200 locations across Canada.
