K'Naan Tuesday May 26 @Cargo + fancy an open mic Spot?

K'NAAN
K'NAAN

What are you doing next Tuesday???... Do yourself a favour and get down to London's Cargo to catch rap-star showman K'Naan in action. After selling out the Jazz cafe and Cargo in 2006 he's back for an eagerly awaited return.

In 2007 KâNaan (meaning "traveler" in Somali) released the live album 'On the Road' which won Best Newcomer in the prestigious BBC Radio 3 Awards, now two years later, his new album 'Troubadour' will became one of raps must have albums of 2009. Kânaan will be performing material from this eagerly anticipated new album (released in the UK later this year) next Tuesday on what promises to be an absolute scorcher of a show.

To make the night even more exciting (impossible), K'NAAN has opened the traditional support slot to any UK MCâs who would like to perform on the famous Cargo stage (OOOkkkkk). The open mic support will give a chance for UK talent to shine in front of K'NAAN and industry tastemakers (v nice).

This opportunity will be open to any attendees at the show from 7pm. To register interest in performing please email competitions@aeglive.co.uk
