Saul Williams is an amazing and unique artist whose work spans musical genres and artistic disciplines. When he came down to the Brownswood basement we spoke about his history, his role as an artist and his excitement at the current state of music and poetry. It's impossible not to be affected by his energy and enthusiasm for art and the discovery of new places and experiences across the globe.
Saul ends our interview with a very special performance over John Coltrane's "Equinox". Essential listening!
