Expect universal vibes and uncompromising truths spoken to the back drop of hip-hop, jazz, soul, grime and afrobeat.
About the line up
Brother Portrait writes poetry, prose, musings and music. Before Steam Down, you might have met him at a shop floor sessions jam, or with Vulpes Vulpes or with the Naew Funk poets, or maybe trading bars with his black/other brothers…
Nadeem Din-Gabisi is an artist, DJ and poet. His artwork and poetry are centered around the re-presentation of the black image. Through all his artistic practices Nadeem actively seeks ways to bridge the gap between the seen and unseen
Germane Marvel is a playwright, poet, philosopher and a pianist, who recently co-wrote and performed in Battersea Arts Centre’s award winning, five-star show Frankenstein: How to Make A Monster. He is particularly interested in exploring the place where art, science and philosophy meet.
