Kate Tempest

Krems Stadtsaal Stadtsaal

Program text


A couple of years ago she still played in small clubs with her band Sound of Rum. Then Kate Tempest’s career took a meteoric swing as a musician, lyricist, theatre and novel writer. At her concerts, however, you can see that she is still, and above all, one thing: one of Britain’s best rappers. She rattles and spits the words out; she has rhythm, style, and at the same time a proletarian nonchalance. In her texts Shakespeare meets Roots Manuva, Gil Scott-Heron and the Brothers Grimm, she quotes tragedies from antique Athens and raps for the “chemical kids” in twenty-first-century cities.
