The Revolution Will Be Live

Thursday 2 September 2021

Kim Jordan Plays Gil Scott-Heron with Ka’ba Soul Singer performing as Gil and Gil’s Protégé Malik & The O.G’s featuring Michelle John.

We celebrate the life and times of Gil Scott-Heron in the company of his former bandmates and friends.

The Revolution Will Be Live is the critically acclaimed, festival-headlining show, lovingly put together by Kim Jordan, Gil’s musical director for over 30 years, and his protégé Malik Al Nasir, whose band Malik & The O.G’s will feature Voice UK finalist Michelle John.

Kim Jordan, who can be heard on many of Gil’s albums including Spirits, Tales of the Amnesia Express and Gil’s last album I’m new here, will be performing a set of his finest works with a full live band and Washington DC vocalist Ka’Ba as Gil.

Malik & The O.G’s will open the show with a Gil-inspired spoken word set.

This is a fitting tribute to one of the most prolific and iconic musical figures of the 21st century.
