Just down the harbour from The Bristol, The Arnolfini will be playing host to Tongue Fu Ft. Dizraeli and guests as part of a concert series in the run up to next year’s Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival. Tongue Fu, the UK’s leading spoken word and music show, will see storytellers and rappers flex their skills to live improvised soundtracks.
