DIZRAELI

Dizraeli is a Bristol-born rapper, poet and musician. Although rooted strongly in hip-hop traditions, his work draws inspiration from old folk music, recognising the common ground shared by songs of the people from any point in history. Touching, funny stories of riots, atheism and Englishness though folk, rap, spoken word and hymns, Dizraeli embodies 21st Century folk.
 
The Independent Dizraeli has won both the Farrago UK Slam Championships and the BBC Radio 4 Poetry Slam, and written several hip-hop plays including the award winning ‘Rebel Cell’, with Baba Brinkman.
 
“Folk or hip-hop? I don’t know, but Dizraeli makes me realise how wonderful it is to hear real English – fluent, witty and arresting”
