MATATU celebrates five years of culture clash with a one off performance party featuring Saul Williams. Early bird tickets on sale now.

“In Senegal, I was buying iPhones for $20, Beats for $10, because they get all the influx from China, with no regulation. So everyone’s online. Everyone’s high tech.”

Saul Williams has been breaking ground since his debut album, Amethyst Rock Star, was released in 2001 and executive produced by Rick Rubin. After gaining global fame for his poetry and writings at the turn of the century, Williams has performed in over 30 countries and read in over 300 universities, with invitations that have spanned from the White House, the Sydney Opera House, Lincoln Center, The Louvre, The Getty Center, Queen Elizabeth Hall, to countless, villages, townships, community centers, and prisons across the world. The Newburgh, New York native gained a BA from Morehouse and an MFA from Tisch, and has gone on to record with Nine Inch Nails and Allen Ginsburg, as well as countless film and television appearances.
