‘American Afrikan’ Release on Pioneer Press

Poet/musician E.G. Bailey will mark the release of “American Afrikan” Saturday at Bedlam Theatre on a bill with Guante, Sha Cage, Mankwe Ndosi and Ibe Kaba. It’s a spoken-word concept album that starts in Africa, explores America and “ends up somewhere that defies easy definition.”

Indeed, for spoken word, the disc has plenty of music, with a rich tapestry of African folk sounds and modern hip-hop beats backing Bailey’s booming voice. There’s even a spacey dance-floor-ready remix of the title track added as a bonus at the end of the disc.
