The Rebirth Tour by Free Fyre
The Rebirth Tour brought to you by Free Fyre, is a mix of Jazz and Spoken Word poetry live retelling the stories of the Harlem renaissance.
We want to give people a renewed mind of Jazz & poetry, and how influential it is to our culture. We understand the world is at a loss due to the pandemic. We want to restore a joyful noise in the same way Jazz & poetry did for the Black community in the 1920s. Anytime there is a great disaster a renaissance is necessary to restore the people to build back better. Harlem understood this in the 1920s by responding with the Harlem renaissance after the Great Influenza, and the Great migration. The Rebirth Tour brought to you by Free Fyre, is a mix of Jazz and Spoken Word poetry live retelling the stories of the Harlem renaissance artists. This tour will mix sounds and songs from the Harlem Renaissance to modern day poetry and jazz.
