BAM Poetry 2017 presents Soul Science Lab: Get Up, Stand Up!
April 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $10
Join Brooklyn-based hip-hop duo Soul Science Lab at BAM’s annual spoken word and poetry celebration, Poetry 2017: Word. Sounds. Power! This year, the innovative afro-futuristic griots, Chen Lo and Asante’ Amin (known collectively as Soul Science Lab) are set to celebrate the power of spoken-word with a hip-hop big band family-friendly concert, called Get Up, Stand Up!
The daytime concert, titled “Get Up, Stand Up!” will stretch the consciousness and various creative aesthetics in and around hip-hop and spoken word and celebrate the inherent radical nature of spoken word for a younger audience. This year’s featured poets include The Peace Poets, OSHUN, Lady Logic, Frank Waln DJs and student poets, under the direction of Baba Israel and hosted by by BAM’s own, Mikal Amin. Other acts include DJ Reborn, musician YAKO 440 and a dance performance of NUU Knynez.
“Soul Science Lab was created for this kind of performance. We always create with youth in mind. At its core our music and movement are about legacy building and inspiring the minds that will change the world.” – Chen Lo
