Faces of Boulder – IBashi-I – Pearl Street Malls Glass Box Man
“Everybody look at me!”
If you have been to Boulder and visited the Pearl Street Mall, I’m sure you have heard this line before. And you have probably heard it coming out of a 20-by-20-glass box. Well, this is the voice of street performer, IBashi-I.
IBashi-I has been performing on Pearl Street for almost 25 years. He came to Boulder from the Caribbean.
“It’s my second home,” IBashi-I says, “I’ve traveled to a lot of places, but Boulder is more attractive than anywhere I’ve been. You come once, you come again!”
“This place is contagious,” he says.
Contagious—just like him. Watching IBashi-I’s yoga, body contortion and balance show, mixed with his fantastic personality and humor will leave you smiling for the rest of the day.
“This is what I do,” he says. And those who watch his performance can see that he loves every second of it!
