The photo was taken by friend Rosie Ward and the clothes are by my favorite Zena Jones of Stylists Own, Bristol.

En Fran?ais: Du hip-hop ? la soul, en passant par le jazz et le ragga, son premier album An Exercice on Scalls and balances est d’une essence trip-hop ? la Bristolienne. Zion Flex cultive l’?clectisme, au point qu’on pourrait la placer au carrefour des styles d’une Coco Rosie et d’une Keny Arkana crois?e ? Beth Gibbon.

Poli-artiste… de Bristol, la chanteuse Zion Flex envoute par son charisme de danseuse hip-hop et son flow extraordinaire, m?lodieux et tr?s personnel qui alterne un phras? rythm? et rempli d’?motions avec des phases slow et tranquilles, plus progressives, tirant presque vers le slam.

Venez l’?couter le mardi 22 septembre au polikarpov ? 21 heure!
