Mwatabu Okantah & Vince Robinson 

When: Fri., April 4, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $20
It “ain’t hip-hop, but it’s hip!” That’s how Mwatabu Okantah has described the music he’s makes with Vince Robinson & the Jazz Poets. You may have heard Okantah perform with Cavani String Quartet, or the Muntu Kuntu Energy Ensemble over the years. Now, he’s joined up with local poetry and arts advocate Vince Robinson and his band to deliver the power of words set to gospel, funk, blues, jazz and African-inspired beats. If you’re familiar with hip-hop poet Gil Scott-Heron, you’ve got a good idea what this sounds like. Expect to hear a more modern point-of-view from these very relevant poets. (Gonzalez)
