One of the most heralded up-and-coming bands on the folk and festival circuits, Dizraeli and the Small Gods are playing their only London date until Spring 2013 at the Jazz Cafe in Camden on November 3 to launch their latest single and video ‘Never Mind’.
Dizraeli and The Small Gods play, in their own words, “a folked, melodic, unashamedly heartfelt reinvention of hiphop”, blending the twin passions of their poet/rapper frontman with a band including guitarist Lee Westwood, flute and vocals from Cate Ferris, DJ Downlow on decks and female UK champion beatboxer Bellatrix on both beatbox and double bass.
With many gigs under their belts, including Glastonbury, WOMAD, Latitude and Larmer Tree festivals and Dizraeli himself having collaborated with artists as disparate as Chris Wood, Transglobal Underground and Jam Baxter (as well as winning awards for his poetry, such as the BBC Radio 4 Poetry Slam), the Small Gods present a show that has been wowing journalists and fans alike.
Their Jazz Cafe show will feature sets by Dizraeli and the Small God (with guest piper Philippe Barnes) as well as a spoken word set by Dizraeli and support acts. Tickets are £11.50, and can be bought via Ticketmaster here or from the Jazz Cafe Camden box office.
In the run up to the release of Dizraeli’s Never Mind EP on October 22, here is a teaser:
