Spoken Word Poets Speakers of the House @ The Inspired Word
Spoken Word Poets Speakers of the House (Marcus John and Naa Akua) @ Mike Geffner Presents The Inspired Word, Thursday, July 21, 2011 @ One and One Bar/Restaurant, Nexus Lounge, Manhattan, NYC.
Led by Mr. John and Naa Akua, providing the perfect blend of MCing and Spoken Word, the Speakers of the House create a fusion unlike any other - sounding like 90's hip hop and r&b mixed with the soul of jazz and the heartbeat of Africa's drums. Influenced by their strong faith in God as well as such legendary musicians as The Fugees, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis, and Bob Marley, these are artists dedicated to righting the world with their words. They seek to build, not destroy; to unify, not divide; to provide the positive light of insight and meaning in such dark, negative times.
The Inspired Word is New York City's hottest new spoken word poetry open mic series happening every Tuesday and Thursday night in downtown Manhattan, produced by longtime journalist and former Village Voice columnist Mike Geffner.
