BHM: Napoleon Maddox: ISWhat?!
US jazz and hip-hop artist Napoleon Maddox and his group ISWHAT?! perform at artsdepot. Featuring fierce jazz sounds, funky groove and vocal gymnastics, Napoleon Maddox and ISWHAT?! span a range of musical styles, taking in everything from Duke Ellington to Outkast to create a wildly original mix of hip hop and acoustic jazz.

Napoleon Maddox is a beatboxer, rapper, singer, songwriter, teacher and broadcaster who has performed worldwide, and worked with musicians and producers including Karsh Kale, Burnt Sugar, Hamid Drake and Roy Nathanson. Cincinnati-based ISWHAT?!, led by Maddox, is one of the most groundbreaking hip-hop groups to emerge from America in recent memory.

The group is part of a movement that aims to bring originality back to underground beats. Following the release of their critically acclaimed album 'The Life We Chose' in 2006, ISWHAT?! has toured many of Europe's major music festivals and will be performing material from their new album 'Big Appetite' at artsdepot.

Time: 8pm
Address: Artsdepot, 5 Nether Street, Tally Ho Corner, North Finchley, London N12 0GA
