VOCAB: Akua Naru Live at Saltbox Nottingham on Sunday 21st May 2017
In collaboration with Saltbox Bar and Vince Jazz, we present a polemical VOCAB special.
'The female Gill Scott-Heron' returns to Nottingham with what promises to be an even more enchanting spoken word, hip hop, jazz and soul event. Sprinkling her #BlackGirlMagic over our stage once again is the enchanting Akua Naru and her live band.
Since leaving us spellbound in April 2016, Ms Naru has toured the world, including Brazil; been in the studio with ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatke; jammed with Yasiin Bey (Mos Def); and recently premiered a tribute to Toni Morrison via Okay Player.
We invite you to welcome Akua and the band to Saltbox Bar, Sunday 21st May.
