3 The Hard way

Thursday, October 29

Join three powerful poets; Jean Binta Breeze MBE, a Jamaican, Lydia Towsey of Hungarian and Welsh descent and Shruti Chauhan of Gujarati origin, as they proudly present 3 The Hard Way live at The Drum.

3 The Hard Way derives from Jamaican culture where male DJs would respond to each other’s sets in collaboration and competition. The idea was adopted by UK male dub poets, led by Linton Kwesi Johnson in the 80s. Following a rave reviewed UK tour in 2014, the women will once again re-appropriate the format to explore our times.

Doors: 7:30pm
Show: 8:00pm
