Hot news via the British Council!
We are delighted to announce that No Black Tie, the venue of our popular Wayang Kata series, has now started hosting regular spoken word events. They launched their first monthly event on the 1st of April, and are following up with another one this Saturday 21st, with a poet introduced to them by our soulful UK poet Malika Booker!
We’re so pleased, we have to pass on the good news.
April 21 ~ Saturday NAMAYA LIVE!
Namaya is an internationally renowned high wire performance artist of the spoken word. NAMAYA LIVE! is a fun, energetic fusion of spoken word, music, stories, & multimedia. He has performed on European tours which have included Denmark, England (with a show at the celebrated "Apples & Snakes" in London) & Holland. In 2006 he performed in New York at the Bowery, throughout the US, Ireland, Japan, and an extended tour in New Zealand . With his virtual electronic band the Jazz Beat Experience he weaves a magical spell of jazz, blues, and an astonishing flight of words.
"...hip, sexy, irreverent, and very political."
Equally engaging is Namaya's ability to spontaneously create poems and stories drawn from the suggestions of the audience; one performance in Amsterdam had the crowd cheering for more poems of, "Flying pigs, greasy chicken thighs, quantum physics and true love." Visit www.vermontpoet.com and http://www.jazzbeatblues.com to sample poems, audio clips, and a small video of a recent live show. The Nuyorican Café in NYC said, "Great show!"
"Brilliant!" exclaimed Apples and Snakes in London
"Encore!" said The Winston in Amsterdam
Performance starts at 10pm. Entrance: rm40
