<B>Aeroplane Man - Jonzi D</B><P>Ismene Brown's review in The Daily Telegraph. <P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>JONZI D's parents came from Grenada, his taste in music is Jamaican, his aspirations are for New York and he has been drilled that to be black is to be African. But he was born and bred in Bow, east London, and wears Union flag boxer shorts. After the racist insults of Bow bobbies get to him, he runs off on a global search for his identity, chanting a new mantra "gotta-gotta go".<P>It is a sober subject for a hugely enjoyable show. Jonzi's Aeroplane Man melds dance, rap, song, comedy, music and the sheer desire to have a party with the audience. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Another very good one I missed!<P><BR><A HREF="Http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=a5KuWaXJ&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/01/6/1/btaer01.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited June 03, 2001).]

<B>Jonzi D</B><P>Judith Mackrell reviews for The Guardian<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Jonzi D's Aeroplane Man started life as a brief monologue in his hip-hop show Lyrikal Feata - and you can see why he thought it too good to waste. Inspired by his own experience as a black man raised in east London, the piece traces the fictional journey of a man in search of his roots - fleeing a culture where he feels only half at home for a mythic motherland where he thinks he can be reclaimed.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <P><A HREF="http://www.guardian.co.uk/reviews/story/0,3604,500318,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A><BR>
