We are delighted to announce Benjamin Zephaniah and the revolutionary minds will be performing at The Spiegeltent this December 2019
Benjamin Zephaniah is a pioneering dub poet, musician and acclaimed author whose work has educated and inspired an entire generation of people.
Benjamin’s live performances are the stuff of legend and he has garnered a reputation as both an educator and an entertainer.
His music is largely founded on principle of the ‘reggae heartbeat’; allowing the body to move in harmony with the rhythms of the music. Benjamin will be performing songs and poems from his back catalogue including tracks from his 2017 release ‘Revolutionary Minds’.
There is also a DJ set from the mercurial talent that is Mr Benn. Reared on a tasty diet of Aswad, The Specials and King Tubby, 90s hip hop, plenty of jungle and hi-life rhythms, the musical influences behind Mr Benn’s sound are vast and wide but always rooted in a passion for the heavy bass that his home town of Bristol is renowned for.
Doors open – 7pm
