Live performance curators LYRIX ORGANIX teamed up with spoken word act Sophia Thakur on “Dance” . The result is a vibrant collage of classical sounds meeting grime  and dancehall giving it a very dynnamic vibe as Sophia Thakur encourages the listener not to forget to dance and embrace life a sit unfolds despite the uncertain times we face today. Thakur brings a very expressive feel with her passionate and vivid lyrics that captures the essence of celebrating life as it is and not being shackled up by the daily troubles. She further explains “… prefer music sometimes to poetry so having the opportunity to combine the two was literally incredible. In terms of kicking it off with Dance, it was written for one of my best mates that passed away just over a year ago. He was a poet and he pushed me to do poetry and I’ve kept him in the focus point since graduating, which is when I first got involved with UnFOLD. the message itself is obviously to celebrate the nuances of life…”

“Dance” is off the upcoming EP UnFOLD ep2 from LYRIX ORGANIX which will be released on the 4th October – National Poetry Day 2018.
