Allographic presents a series of cross-genre happenings in the form of the Jazz Poetry Jam at La Raza Cocktail Bar.

Jazz and poetry have had a long and fruitful relationship — from the genre-busting epics of the Beat Poets to modern day artists combining music and spoken word. There are whole organisations dedicated to the blend of free-form music and metred words, and rap and hip-hop have their roots in this potent mix.

Following on from the success of the Jazz Poetry Jam as part of Cambridge Jazz Festival, and sporting a talented house band, we will combine open mic for both poets and musicians, along with special guest artists.

So bring some poetry or your own, your voice, your charts, an instrument or two, or just come along and watch (and listen!) in the fabulous surroundings of La Raza.

Entry is free; donations will be taken. We regret that La Raza is not currently accessible to wheelchair users.
