Some people might look at The Hockley flyover and see; well, a flyover, lots of concrete and lets be honest, an urban wasteland. It’s a good job Newtown’s Jazz and Hip Hop star Soweto Kinch possesses a greater imagination than that. Because for the 6th time he will be transforming the grey asphalt monotony of the A41’s underbelly into a sprawling and colourful urban arts festival featuring an eclectic range of music and dance. Artists appearing include founding Steel Pulse member Basil Gabbidon, Eska, Reuben James, Trope and a whole raft of exciting musicians from across the city. The transformation is so impressive it has to be seen to be believed. More about Soweto Kinch here.
