Lineup and Details for Jon Speedy's Root Down Sessions Ft. Zena Edwards on Thu 12th July 2012
High Energy Funk Jazz Afro-Beat collective led by guitarist Jon Speedy - start a new monthly residency, featuring special guest vocalists/poets/MC's each month. And for the first month do they have a killer lady lined up... Wowza. Zena Edwards has been involved in performance for 16 years as a vocalist, poet and stage-manager after graduating from Middlesex University. Raised in Tottenham, North London, Zena has become known as one the most unique voices of performance poet to come out of London. She has toured extensively receiving international acclaim and has shared stages and anthologies with some of her most admired predecessors Linton Kwesi Johnson, Sonia Sanchez, Lemn Sissay, Jean Binta Breeze. Zena is revered not only for the easy power of her words but also for her opulent delivery, for the complex manipulation of her voice. Her work is deep and sensuous, rhythmic and startling.
