Watch Again: Live is Alive!

Fri 21 May - Sun 20 Jun 2021
From £3

A laid-back evening of subtle moves and tight grooves from jazz, soul, reggae, ska and beat poetry. 

We are excited to be able to offer watch again access to this rescheduled Live is Alive performance celebrating Brighton's vital music scene.

This performance was recorded live from Brighton Dome Concert Hall on Friday 21 May

Dakka Skanks
presented by The Prince Albert

Dakka Skanks bring hard reggae, ska, dub and punk rhythms together in a fresh style. Clara Byrne's mesmerising lead vocal cuts through like a wave of emotion, her lyrical integrity straight from the soul, with serious social and political issues explored through dramatic delivery.

Super Dupes
presented by Komedia

Initially something of a social call, Super Dupes soon evolved into a zippy set of groovy and diverse material ranging somewhere between funk, jazz, Afrobeat and fusion. Super Dupes deliver melodic, hand clapping, foot stomping musical nuggets with passion and aplomb.

AFLO. and the Poets
presented by Latest Music Bar

AFLO. and the Poets are a collective comprised of individually talented Black artists. Khanyisa (they/them) is a proud mixed raced, queer, non-binary soulful singer/songwriter mixing a fusion of soul, jazz, folk and funk who exudes tenderness, sincerity and sass. Priss (she/they) is a poet and spoken word artist telling their stories and lived experience through verses, bars and pars. AFLO. the poet (she/her) is a spoken word artist with a rhythmic flow and a voice heard all over Brighton at recent Black Lives Matter marches. Together, they bring you the heartbreaking and empowering sounds of the revolution - definitely a treat for the ears, mind and heart.
