Never miss another 'Akala' show
Hip Hop Shakespeare: Akala
A voice for the contemporary hip hop scene, Akala strives to demonstrate the poetry and lyricism of rap. Winner of the MOBO award for Best Hip Hop Artist in 2006, Akala is also founder and Artistic Director of the Hip Hop Shakespeare Company.
Here he talks about rap and the original way he is presenting Shakespeare to a new generation of audiences.
Taking hip-hop back from the corporate world, MOBO award-winning hip hop artist, writer, poet and educator Kingslee 'Akala' Daley wages war on the mediocre rap industry with his diverse combination of influences including trance, folk, punk and soul.
Over the years Akala has developed a stellar live show with his renowned drummer/award-winning music producer Cassell 'TheBeatmaker' (Plan B, The Streets and Keziah Jones).
