The Floacist curates and headlines a special evening celebrating the on-going cultural explosion in South London that has witnessed the emergence of some of the most exciting young British jazz talent for many years.
Natalie ‘Floacist’ Stewart is the founding member of the ground breaking seven-time Grammy nominated, platinum selling, UK International Neo-Soul sensation Floetry. Returning to her South London roots with her unique blend of poetry and song, this will be a night not to be missed.
The Floacist has created a unique jazz inspired set, giving us a chance to see her in another light interpreting her Floetic vibration through the lens of another genre.
Poetry and jazz have a long history together so this will be a special treat for Floacist fans and jazz heads alike.
