Sh'maya @ Ronnie Scotts June '11

Don't be put off the by the quality of this vid. Sh'maya is a beautifully lyrical and musical poet. And with musicians Simon Wallace on Piano, Winston Clifford on Drums and Davide Mantovani on Bass, his work paints so many pictures....

He takes it a step further.
Pheonix Solo - breath, rhythm, word, fire...

Pheonix Lyrics

From the ink of the strain
From the pain of the prayer
From the pain of the Word

The Word will rise
From the breath of the page
To the rains of the city
To the rains of the gasp
