WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Dizraeli has won both the Farrago UK Slam Championships and the BBC Radio 4 Poetry Slam, and written several hip hop plays including the award winning Rebel Cell, with Baba Brinkman. Dizraeli and the Small Gods were shortlisted for the 2014 Songlines Music Award for their album Moving In the Dark.
Bristol-born rapper, poet and musician Dizraeli comes to the Elgar Room. Although rooted strongly in hip hop traditions, his work draws inspiration from old folk music, recognising the common ground shared by songs of the people from any point in history. He leads the six-piece band Dizraeli and the Small Gods, fusing beatbox, strings, turntables and harmony singing in an unashamedly heartfelt reinvention of hip hop.
