An urgent and engaging performer, poet, singer, dancer and percussionist, backed by an explosively tight live band, Dizraeli brings his whole being to his shows and will leave it all out there at Jaminaround 2020 part 1! In November 2019 Dizraeli launched his new album ‘The Unmaster’, announcing a fresh style and a completely new chapter in his music making: Hip Hop meets garage and grime, shot through with his trademark musical innovation and lyrical dexterity. The music on the album explores the chaos of the world and his own experience of a mental breakdown. By turns frantic, tender, heavy and ecstatic and always driven by heavy basslines and frenzied beats.
“An incredible album… brilliant” - GILLES PETERSON
"A brave and wildly different sound... startling" – TOM ROBINSON – BBC 6 MUSIC
SNOWPOET are a London based band led by vocalist Lauren Kinsella and composer and multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. Blending sweet hook-laden vocal lines with warm and lush arrangements, the music is infectious, delicate and tasteful. The sound is clear and beautifully produced while the lyrical content exhibits a deep and raw emotion. Surrounded in the band by guitarist Chris Montague, Matt Robinson on piano and Dave Hamblett on drums, Snowpoet create from a full-spectrum colour palette sustained and illuminated by supreme levels of musicianship. Snowpoet released their most recent album ‘Thought You Knew’ in 2018 to rave reviews, confirming their reputation as one of the most interesting and vibrant vocal led ensembles in the UK today.
“Thought You Knew offers a delicately haunting collection of songs that seamlessly straddle the boundaries of folk, jazz and popular music and are all infused with, as the name suggests, a subtle poetic delivery.” ALL ABOUT JAZZ
