This is a night showcasing the best in hip-hop, poetry and acoustic spoken word, with Bristol hip-hop legend Dizraeli headlining, support from local Selby And The Dharma Blitz, The Bonsai Pirates & Bournemouth Poet Laureate, Myriam San Marco.
Bristol boy Dizraeli has been at the height of the spoken word scene for a few years, in his own words he’s just ” walking around noticing things.” A festival staple, his words flow into stories and rhythms about human beings, trees and buildings.
“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
Selby And The Dharma Blitz
A rare, acoustic show from the legendary local band.
Selby and the Dharma Blitz is an eight piece alternative, hip hop, funk project that merges arresting lyricism with a unique musical direction. A sound that hosts an array of styles and flavors delivering with conviction a wealth of hefty beats, uplifting brass and vocal sweetness. The Dharma Blitz provides a fusion of folkloric storytelling with infectious groove, inviting the listener to tune in, drop out, and get lost in their blissful bombardment.
A bunch of salty sea dogs who love nothing more than making port and playing music for the gathering land lovers! Acoustic, indie folk vibes.
