Poetry Meets Soul pres. Qudus & Habib + J.Lamotta すずめ25 May
POETRY MEETS Soul is a smooth continuation of the popular event POETRY MEETS Hip Hop, providing you with an intimate and exclusive evening full of Soul, Blues, Jazz and Poetry.
Produced by The Poetry Meets Series
Every 3rd Thursday of a month at Prachtwerk Neukölln.
On this upcoming edition of Poetry meets Soul we are presenting you special guests Qudus & Habib as well as free-jazz, neo-soul musician J.Lamotta すずめ as this months' headliner:
J.Lamotta すずめ was born in Tel Aviv to a family with Moroccan roots. In 2014 she turned her back on a promising jazz career, dropping out of the Jazz Institute Tel Aviv and relocating to Berlin, where she immersed herself in the hip-hop/free-jazz/neo-soul scene.
She began producing her own beats and singing on them, as well as rapping, playing trumpet, percussion & synth. She has released two entirely self-produced EPs: "Dedicated To" (2015) and "Grains of Sand" (2016), and has collaborated with Berlin's leading artists including: Figub Brazlevič (founder Krekpek Records), Vernon D. Hill (J Dilla, Dwele, Slum Village, QuestLove) and Q3000 (Ras G).
"Inspirations are as endless as the space and the ocean", is how Lamotta described her first release. Sun Ra, J Dilla, John Coltrane, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye & Sade have been played over and over on her record-player, to name a few.
Qudus & Habib Singer/Songwriter

They will take you on a journey to view life through their eyes as they confront you with their socio-political perspective and their undefineable sound that touches more than just one genre.
Their poetic lyrics and staggering presence on stage carry an emotional range that will take you from touched to euphoric, reflective to calmed down to carried away and serene.
Both have been creatively active as a duo since 2012.

EAWY // Eight Fold EP Release Show26 May
earnest and without you eight fold EP release show
live at prachtwerk, berlin
presented by ALL ROOMS
admission: 10 €
presale: 7,70 € via tixforgigs
Special Guest: Petula
When Antonio Passacantilli and Daniella Grimm started to work together as a duo in 2013 they instantly focussed on deep synthesizer sounds, dreamy soundscapes and polyrhythmic drum machine beats. For their upcoming EP "eight fold" they switched to acoustic drums in order to create more space for their epic sound that is diffuse and melodic at the same time. „we kind of broke in and through our inner and outer voids and got catched by the idea to make them audible“, says Daniella, who follows this concept closely with her haunting voice. After the release of their EP in may 2017 the band is planning a tour through germany. „As we love to follow the true nature of our songs, it takes a great amount of time and inspiration to find the right colours that each song requires. It`s in the details“ says Antonio and smiles.

Martin Rose (DE)
"Musik ist die Ebene, auf der Martin Rose die Urkräfte und Untiefen der Seele in Einklang bringen kann, daraus ist eine Art stoische Leidenschaft geworden. Man könnte es auch Soul nennen.
Martin Rose ist ein wirklich talentierter Songwriter, kann singen, Bass & Gitarre spielen, hat Humor und sieht gut aus. Von Heiratsanträgen ist abzusehen."
Den Ursprung hat diese Bühne im kulturellen Hotspot Berlin gefunden. KünstlerInnen aus aller Welt suchen hier nach Möglichkeiten ein interessiertes Publikum zu erreichen und sich unter einander zu vernetzen.Aus genau diesem Hintergrund gründet sich das Konzept des Songcircle Berlin. Die Idee besteht darin, aufstrebende Talente zu entdecken und ihnen eine Plattform zu bieten.
Der Songcircle Berlin ermöglicht NachwuchskünstlerInnen den Einstieg in ein Netzwerk bestehend aus anderen Songwritern, neuen Fans und darüber hinaus aus Labels und Agenturen. Dieses Netzwerk existiert nicht nur online, sondern in erster Linie geht es darum, den Kontakt live und hautnah zu ermöglichen. Während monatlich organisierten Veranstaltungen treten jeweils drei KünstlerInnen, bzw. Bands auf, wobei es entscheidend ist, dass diese aus möglichst unterschiedlichen Regionen und Ländern stammen, um ein umfangreiches Programm anbieten zu können, aber vor allem, um den Circle zu erweitern.

Double Solo Show: David Lemaitre & Kendy Gable08 Jun
Kendy Gable grew up in the farm fields and mountains of central Pennsylvania (USA). She now divides her time between Berlin, Germany and New York City. The mix of country life and city life is prominent in her music. Influenced by Neko Case, Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen there is an honesty and depth in her voice and in the music she writes.
Kendy's most notable New York City performances have been at Joe's Pub, Symphony Space, New World Stages (Broadway Theatre), Pete's Candy Store, Rockwood Music Hall, Barbes, Jalopy Theatre, the Rockshop, Sidewalk Cafe, Postcrypt Coffee House, Pianos, and many great art spaces and lofts. Additionally, Kendy has performed at World Cafe Live (WXPN Philadelphia) and on Sirius XM Radio in Washington, DC. She has toured through the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe.
Her third album, "The Knowledge of the North Woods" co-produced with Adam Chilenski (Mikael Jorgenson (Wilco), Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic), Penguin Prison, Emilie Simon) is set to release on July 12, 2017.
David Lemaitre is originally from La Paz in Bolivia, 3600 meters above the sea level. The son of a painter and an engineer grew up with the folk songs of the South-American highlands and the psychedelic 70s record collection of his parents. Moving to Europe to pursue a path in music he quickly gained international attention with his unique voice and intimate performances, extensively touring Europe and releasing his highly acclaimed debut Album 'Latitude' on the renowned label PIAS Recordings. With a bold blend of colors and rhythms his music is a mixture of of melancholic folk and experimental pop. His song 'Megalomania' received international rotation in Radios in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and south America.
While intensely working on his second Album in Berlin and after having played bigger venues in the past with his Trio, Lemaitre returns to a more intimate solo setting in one of his favorite spots in Berlin - Prachtwerk - showcasing his classic songwriting craft, south American wideness, and presenting some unreleased material on stage for the first time.
