For years Lowkey has dedicated his writing to protesting for humanitarian causes and the most vulnerable parts of society through topics such as Palestine, illegal wars, political corruption, Grenfell tower, and many more, most notably through his timeless album Soundtrack to the Struggle. An acclaimed public speaker also, Lowkey will be joining the discussion panel. He will be joined for this live acoustic set by pianist Karim Kamara and the soulful vocals of Kaia.


With the power of vulnerability as the theme: Nadinne infuses her passionate spoken words with the sounds of multi-faceted experimental electronic beats (produced by Nick Doobay) weaving both her personal experiences and perspectives on current societal issues with a soulful accompaniment featuring Black Cindy.
