Event Details

Jazz. Poetry. These two are more than just means of entertainment, more than just methods of storytelling. They both act as historic objects that records our lives and memories. They are the archives of our souls, bodies, and minds. Jazz is inside of poetry, and poetry is inside of jazz, and both are inside all of us.

Sunday 6 October we invite you for a special edition of Jazz & Poetry in collaboration with Afrovibes at Labyrinth.
Invited by Afrovibes musician and performer Olatunde Obajeun from Nigeria will perform with the jazz/spoken word trio Vignette! They will accompany Unciapoetry, poet_ck to let you feel what jazz & poetry is all about.

Join us and experience Jazz & Poetry while enjoying exquisite cocktails made by mixologist Sam Kingue Ebelle and Afro/Caribbean soul food.


Vignette! is a jazz/spoken word group consisting of guitarist Euan Richard, bassist Baesst, and vocalist Alexander Cromer. The three met on a warm summer evening in Amsterdam during #openmicmonday at Labyrinth. After a spontaneous improvised jam session at the end of the open mic, the three decided to continue creating positive vibrations together. Pulling from neo-soul, jazz, blues, and hip hop influences, Vignette! seeks to envelope you in the beautiful chaos of life, love, and the occasional sandwich.

Labyrinth is initiated and hosted by Sam Kingue Ebelle. Born in Cameroon, having worked in some of the best bars worldwide, Sam is one of Amsterdam’s most gifted mixologists. This poet-turned-alchemist is responsible for cocktails that elevate the senses as well as the spirit. Inspired by the warmth of Mother Africa and the vibrancy of Afropolis,

Labyrinth organises all kind of events, including Labyrinth Poetry Night ( every last saturday of the month)
and Open Mic Mondays ( every monday)
