It's funk or punk, or acid/new music. The poetry is beat or free, slam or rap. Or, just poetry. You choose. M is Black Enough (MiBE) is pulling audiences out of their seats with complex verse and musical compositions which together speak directly and forcefully to the issues of our times. Featuring the poetry of Roger Bonair-Agard, and the compositions of Andy Akiho (steelpan & percussion) with Jeffrey Zeigler on cello and Sean Dixon on drums, MiBE is an exciting collaboration in new music and new world vision.
