Anthony Anaxagoru takes on Black Lives Mater with the assistance of Karim Kamar whose piano composition creates a dark mournful soundtrack to Anthony’s words. The two combine so well amplifying each others good points to create something uniqye and special. This will need 3 or 4 listens before you get it all I encourage you to do so.
Shoutout SBTV this is really well shot fresh and unique style really like it!

Great to see Mangaliso Asi back. He’s a lyricist I have always had a lot of respect and time for with a vocal tone and flow that is quietly authoritative. He is a real HipHop man. Here he teams up with another Music is Remedy favourite pianist Karim Kamar for a live composition performance of his track “Blissfully Ignorant”. Karim’s playing on the piano compliments Mangaliso’s flow and wordplay perfectly creating a performance where you do hone in on and listen to the lyrics. There are far too many poor MC’s out there and not enough quality, good to have you back Mangaliso.
Music is Remedy is all about UK music so it isn’t really a platform for me to talk about my love of D’angelo and how much i have enjoyed getting stuck into his new album over Christmas, that is until someone chooses to take one of the strongest cuts off of the album (not my favourite though) and cover it in their own special way, will Karim Kamar please stand up. The superb pianist takes to the keys and produces this beautiful arrangement of “Real Love” taking it from the spanish soul fest ballad found on the album and transforming it into an epic soul fueled classical masterpiece. He shows off his skills to the fullest and i’m sure it’s a rendition that any real D’angelo fan and the man himself would appreciate. Masterful work sir!

Something special and epic from Karim Kamar. As the pianist and composer prepares for the launch of his first collection of original compositions he uploaded this performance to give you a taster of what to expect. It is a wonderful piece delivering a range of emotions and some lovely chord choices and tones. Without question he shows he is truly a master of his craft and his forthcoming collection will not just appeal to classical and spoken word fans but lovers of music.
A regular fixture in the posts and gig listings now The Outspoken team had another fantastic show last month below are the highlights. Look out for Music is Remedy Favourite Musa Okwonga. Great to see him on the mic again one of my favourite poets and peoples!
