We are partnering with Poet in The City and East London Dance on a celebration of Langston Hughes poetry at Wilton’s Music Hall on 1st March. A small group of Bloco musicians will be led by Mark Kavuma, performing alongside and interacting with dancers and actors. Tickets are from £8 and are nearly all sold out so book quickly if you want to join the party.
“The epicentre of Harlem Renaissance, Langston Hughes’ rhythmic, urgent poetry empowered a generation of new writers, with an aftershock that still reverberates today. His work was full of music and dance, and described the Black American experience over decades. Characterised by narratives of empowerment and a belief in humanity, he celebrated Black identity in a unique and powerful way.”
