A communion of creatives and an amalgamation of Art presented with words to heal and sounds to commune with the soul. Expect an intimately emotive fusion of Jazz, Afro-beat, Highlife, Reggae and Soulful funk complementing the literary aesthetics of poetry and spokenword.

Sounds & Words is a poetic band and artistic movement that seeks to blend the literary aesthetics rich in poetry/spoken word, with the musical affect, rich in different genres of music. Our objective is to reimagine creative spaces and art performances that facilitates a deeper level of communion with the audience. We believe our art carries a very positive message that is worth sharing and engaging with and that speaks to audiences that cuts across different spectrum of class and race within the society. The band is made up of a horn section (trumpet, flugelhorn, and saxophone) percussion (talking drum, conga, djembe), rhythm section (guitar, bass guitar and a full drum kit). Come and let’s Commune.
