Beatboxing has historically been an art form dominated by men, but as Kaila Mullady proves, women make just as awesome human drum machines.
Mullady made waves in the beatboxing world in May, when she won the Beatbox Battle World Championship in Berlin. (And watching the above video, it's easy to see why.) When HuffPost asked her on Twitter what it's like to excel in an arena that is typically associated with male culture, Mullady tweeted back the following response:
The NYC-based beatboxer has already racked up three bigtime awards for her skillful performances -- she's currently the Vice Beatbox Champion, Loop station champion and three-time Beatrhyme Champion.
Mullady's drive to make her name and talent known is inspiring. Visibility is power -- especially when you're a woman in a male-dominated industry. In a tweet to HuffPost, she reminded us that "more women should be heard." Amen to that.
Check out the full video above.
This article has been updated to reflect that Mullady won the 2015 Beatbox Battle World Championship, not the Grand Beatbox Battle.
