Boudica boogaloo & zaru jonson
Fri 16th Feb 18 20:00 edit
Boudica Boogaloo were our scheduled guests for May last year, but sadly had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. So prepare to be enthralled by this all girl string trio for the first time in Penarth! To compensate for last year’s absence, the trio will present two sets of music for your listening pleasure…
The combination of their unique wealth of musical experience results in an old time Folk/Americana sound with a freshness that is a surprise and a delight: 3 sweet old gals, 3 dirty harmonies, 3 stomping strings and a hell of a good old-time good time!
Zaru Jonson is a writer and performer, raised in North Wales and based in Cardiff, who has been developing his yowling blend of cascading poetry and rap since seeing a beetle repeatedly attempt to drown itself in an Italian swimming pool in the Summer of 2007.
He has supported the likes of Saul Williams, Buddy Wakefield, Dr Syntax, and High Focus Records, and been published in Rhyming Thunder: The Alternative Book of Young Poets (Burning Eye, 2012) and Wales Bird / Aderyn Rhiannon: Dylan Thomas in the American Century (Martin Daws, 2017)
"The avant-garde knife-edge of the future of hip-hop poetry...the verbal astronaut...the next level.""
