MALIK AL NASIR, performance poet and producer of Malik & The O.G.'s from Liverpool, U.K. presents a series of events celebrating the life and work of his friend and mentor Gil Scott-Heron.
The Revolution Will Be Live – A tribute to Gil Scott-Heron series pays tribute to Gil's poetry and music, his activism and role in the civil rights movement.
Malik and his partner Rich McGinnis booked a stellar line-up for an event held at St. George’s Hall (commissioned by Liverpool International Music Festival) — featuring live performances by Talib Kweli, Aswad, The Christians, Craig Charles and Malik & The O.G's featuring Cleveland Watkins and Sophia Ben-Yousef.
We look forward to this series coming to the United States, particularly to Harlem where Gil lived and is deeply loved.
