(M)iyamoto is Black Enough
The poet knows all sorts of things. Right now,
he is convinced he is inside the belly of his greatest
work ever. Rum will do that.
Miyamoto is Black Enough is a collaborative exploration of meaning and conversation; a contemporary band of hard
driving rhythms and biting social commentary that utilizes steelpan, cello, drums, and poetry/vocals. It aims to be
complex and aggressive, and to involve all elements equally in a bold narrative about people, justice, struggle, joy,
"Deliriously complex, sonically vibrant, and piercingly emotive music virtuosically realized on steelpan, electric cello, and drums," according to this review from Arts + Culture Texas.
It is a melange of musical styles form a brash symphony that nods the head, moves the feet, and asks the listener/
viewer to challenge and disturb her own comfort. Miyamoto is both a building frenzy of excitement and a cerebral
jaunt through one's own belief systems, leaning towards a joy that refuses itself unless it is foundation'd in justice.
