Come see “BRONX JAZZ: A Conversation Between Father & Son on Thursday, September 12 from 6 to 7.45 p.m. in the meeting room of the Library. This event is sponsored by the Oversoul Collective Theatre, the Osborne Foundation, the Wareham Cultural Council, and the Wareham Free Library. 

“BRONX JAZZ” is a performance piece combining theater, spoken-word and poetry with live jazz and hip-hop. Written and performed by the father – son duo of Mwalim & ZYG 808, the storyline is built around the average day in a household where both father and son are musicians and reflective of their generational concepts of jazz and hip-hop, but recognizing it all as a tradition. The show was developed through the recently re-introduced Oversoul Theatre Collective artist’s lab, which also developed the experiential musical “The Soul Session”, currently running at the Governor Bradford on Saturday nights.

The ZYG 808 is a 2-time Grammy nominated Hip-Hop Jazz Artist; an accomplished Jazz drummer, songwriter, MC, and vibraphonist who headlined the Boston Jazz Fest at age 11. His upcoming mixtape/album “BooMBAPJAzz” features his musical prowess as well as his skills in production and will be released on his own label, Soul Poets Records. Mwalim is a seasoned artist with a long resume and a new novel coming out in November entitled LAND of the BLACK SQUIRRELS, which is book one of a series called the “Bronx Boheme” by Lit Noire Publishing.
