 Daytimers Mehfil: An Evening of South Asian Poetry

Daytimers, the collective at the heart of the re-emerging Asian Underground, present an evening spotlighting and celebrating South Asian poetry and spoken word.

Following their recent successes in showcasing the breadth of South Asian talent within the underground music industry. Daytimers have taken their first steps into the world of poetry and spoken word, hosting a line-up filled with some of the most exciting South Asian poets operating in the scene right now.

The event will feature performances from the likes of Azan Ahmed, Jay Mitra & Rupinder Kaur Waraich with a live musical interlude from carnatic brother flute duo 2 Flutes. These acts will be followed by a DJ set from Balamii & Voices Radio resident Sway of The Verses.

Following their sold-out Mehfil at Rich Mix in March 2021 and popping up at various festivals across London this summer, Daytimers are thrilled to be bringing the next iteration of Mehfil to Bloomsbury Festival. Secure your tickets now for what is shaping up to be an incredible evening celebrating South Asian artistry. Be sure not to miss out!

There are opportunities available to perform at this event as part of their open-mic slots. Please arrive at the venue at 7pm to sign-up, bring one poem with you, and be prepared to provide the piece’s content warnings.

This event is brought to you as part of Bloomsbury Festival 2022.
