Migration Matters is proud to host the internationally acclaimed activist and rapper Lowkey who will be performing songs from his latest album Soundtrack to the Struggle Part 2.

The return of one of the UK’s most potent and electrifying rappers. Lowkey is a towering figure of the scene who renews the old tradition of conscious hip-hop activism for the war on terror generation. Fusing politically charged lyrics and deft dissection of topics such as race, war, global poverty and politics with anthemic choruses and unrelentingly energetic performance, Lowkey commands a keen and growing legion of followers – still treading new ground and generating fresh hysteria 14 years after releasing his first mixtape.

The performance will be followed by a live talk on music, politics and global justice.
