Live: Expressions Open Mic

Recorded at the February Expressions spoken word open mic at Cafe Koi, with feature performer Sholley Powell. This sounds like a time capsule from another era, all these people together in a space sharing art and having fun. It might be just what we need right now. So pour yourself a drink or a cup of tea, sit back, and imagine you're not in a pandemic lockdown, but out for a night of poetry.

Expressions is having a Zoom edition May 11!
