Bronx Jazz: Oral Traditions, Transformations, and Hip Hop

  • Sturgis Library 3090 Main St. Barnstable, Ma. United States (map)

Whether it’s storytelling, poetry, rap, scatting or singing, it’s of the oral tradition. Stemming from a long line of Mashpee Wampanoag and Caribbean storytellers and oral historians, ZYG 808 and his father, Mwalim bring that tradition into their artistic work as songwriters, playwrights, authors, and poets. Join us for an evening of Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Folklore with “Bronx Jazz”.
