Grit and Soul – Soul City Arts

Our City of Stories

Friday 8 December 7.30–9.30pm

Elgar Concert Hall, Bramall Music Building

Birmingham street-artist and curator Mohammed Ali tells the story of the city, celebrating the graft that is embedded in its DNA. Ali says, ‘Birmingham is no Paris, Tokyo or Milan, it is gritty, but it has soul and that’s how we like it’. Digital visuals are presented alongside performances from celebrated storyteller and author Polarbear and spoken-word artist Ayan Aden, all underpinned by lush soundscapes created by vocalist Cleveland Watkiss.
