GS alum to play Nuyorican Poets Cafe tomorrow
Bored and near the LES? Check out GS alum Ishmael Osekre (’09) performing tonight at 8 p.m. at Nuyorican Poets Cafe on Third Street between Avenue B and Avenue C. Osekre will be performing his own blend of poetry and music in a style the Facebook event describes as “African acoustic pop with mild rock and poetry/rhymes.”
Osekre’s been getting some buzz recently for his unusual rise (he arrived in New York with 30 dollars and some change before going to Columbia) and sudden success. Osekre is performing at the event to promote his new album and book, each of which launches officially tomorrow. His album, titled “No Turning Back From Here,” has nine tracks, all acoustic pop with African influences. His book, “Verses for the Masses,” also comes out tomorrow. Check out the album and book here.
