Description

Howl Spoken Word & Shanty Town in collaboration to bring you the following special event:
 


Dizraeli

 
Dizraeli is a Bristol-born rapper, poet and musician. Although rooted strongly in hip-hop traditions, his work draws inspiration from old folk music, recognising the common ground shared by songs of the people from any point in history.

 
Dizraeli has performed at Glastonbury, Latitude, The Eden Project and The Royal Festival Hall among countless others. He has won both the Farrago UK Slam Championships and the BBC Radio 4 Poetry Slam, and written several hip-hop plays including the award winning 'Rebel Cell', with Baba Brinkman.

 
"touching, funny stories of riots, atheism and Englishness though folk, rap, spoken word and hymns. (Dizraeli) embodies 21st Century folk" The Independent

 
"Folk or hip-hop? I don't know, but Dizraeli makes me realise how wonderful it is to hear real English - fluent, witty and arresting" The Times
 

 

 

Bear Music and the Shanty Town Collective

 
Shanty Town have been taking the Birmingham Music Scene by storm the past couple of years.

 
A collective of artists and musicians who have been turning venues around the country and abroad into packed out havens of artistic expression and community.
 

 


Sean Colletti

 
Sean Colletti is one of the most original poets on the contemporary spoken word scene.

 
Sean will be collaborating with musicians from the Shanty Town collective to bring you a unique set especially for this edition of Howl.
