ArtistesSummary
Benjamin ZephaniahBenjamin Zephaniah was born and raised in Birmingham and has been writing poetry for longer than he can remember despite leaving school age just 13 years old. His poetry is strongly influenced by the music and poetry of Jamaica and what he calls 'street politics'.
Capital 'X' PunishmentServing nearly a third of his life behind bars, 'X' says he has no regrets for the road he has travelled in life, for it has made him who he is today. Using his past experiences behind bars, and his life on the streets, 'X' constructs rhymes that make one to ponder.
The INJUSTICE CDProduced by Migrant Media, The album contains 16 angry responses to injustice, ranging from Ebele’s spoken piece, The Gathering, condemning Channel 4 for failing to show the film, through roots reggae from Yaz Alexander, the driving emotion of Princess Emmanuelle and the hymnlike Justice from Violet Corlis.
The TribunesThe Tribunes are a fiercely political up-and-coming jazz act. They combine music with spoken words to create what band member Gary Duke describes as "a head-on collision between the Streets and John Coltrane."
The Welfare PoetsThe Welfare Poets are a collective of activists, educators, and artists working together since 1990. Through teaching and music, they bring information and inspiration to those facing oppression and those fighting for liberation.
Tippa NaphtaliWhile Tippa is well known across the UK and abroad for his campaigning work, Fewer people know that during the mid-1980’s he was a well established performance poet performing on UK alternative cabaret circuits and with some performing stints abroad.
