World Music Wednesday: Poetic Pilgrimage with special guests Sidewalk Chalk

May 27, 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

Poetic Pilgrimage is a female Hip Hop and Spoken Word duo who express the world as they see it through the art of rhyme. They are a rare act, being one of the few Muslim female outfits around and they bring a refreshing perspective to issues of identity, global politics and women’s issues inspired by their faith and legacy of their ancestors.

Born in Bristol to Jamaican parents they have been performing together as Poetic Pilgrimage for over 10 years creating music that fuses their love of Hip Hop with their Caribbean roots intertwined with their love of Jazz, World Music, Electro Soul and more, providing a colorful landscape to their words. They are also profound Spoken Word artists so at times they require no backdrop at all to share their powerful messages of peace, unity and freedom.

Sidewalk Chalk continues to lead the contemporary evolution of hip-hop, soul, and jazz. The band’s third album, Shoulder Season, is compiled from seven live performances across the US. Its title signifies transition, a time in between two places, a feeling of expectation for what is to come. Sidewalk Chalk’s roots are firmly planted in Chicago where all eight members bring their respective talents together to update a sound first heralded in the Native Tongues era but never so musically diverse.
