Soweto Kinch’s The Legend Of Mike Smith

I am very excited to be starting work on this project tomorrow with Soweto and a whole host of amazingly talented musician
s as we prepare for two blocks of shows performing this amazing theatre piece.

The show is in London at Chats Palace between 22nd and 25th February and we get together again in Coventry between 26th and 29th April at the amazing Belgrade Theatre to perform it there.


Here is what the promo says about it:

UPRIZE presents an incredible staged performance of award-winning jazz and hip hop star Soweto Kinch’s album. With jazz improvisation, a driving hip hop score and choreography from a pioneer of British Hip Hop culture, Jonzi D.

Inspired by The Seven Deadly Sins and Dante’s Inferno, Soweto performs the story of Mike Smith, a young, aspiring MC caught in a world of temptation where the boundaries of reality and fantasy collide.

The Legend of Mike Smith promises to be an absorbing combination of music, animation and dance with music from Kinch’s previous album being played live by Soweto and his band every night.


It would be amazing to see you there if you can make it to any of the shows! More info is on each venue site or from Soweto’s site here!
