Howl Feat. Dizraeli, Shanty Town & Sean Colletti

  • The Dark Horse Alcester Road Birmingham, England, B13 8JP United Kingdom (map)

Howl Spoken Word & Shanty Town in collaboration to bring you the following special event:


Dizraeli is a Bristol-born rapper, poet and musician. 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.

Dizraeli has performed at Glastonbury, Latitude, The Eden Project and The Royal Festival Hall among countless others. He 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.

"touching, funny stories of riots, atheism and Englishness though folk, rap, spoken word and hymns. (Dizraeli) embodies 21st Century folk"
The Independent

"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
