Bio

LouD Speka is a spoken word artist with beats….Meandering between sweet and sour, ironic and serious. Her pieces have a paradoxical mix of gentle and strong, taking on the banks and transnational corporations with her pacifist ammunition.

LouD Speka performs around London, UK occasionally Europe and even more occasionally the odd bit of globe trotting.. She does festies and other underground gigs including

Sunrise Festival, Boom Town Fair, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Big Chill, The Glade, Small World, Buddha Field, Urban Green Fair, Lubstock, International Youth Arts Festival, Fire In the Mountains, Tribal Earth Festival, Festival of Life, Greenbelt, Waveform Festival, Manifest Festival, Bilderberg Fringe Festival, Hayes Carnival…

… and Internationally at

Zagoa Festival Morocco, New York Poetry Café, And Gouda Holland.

She has shared stages/performed at the same event as Kosheen, Groovrider, Fire Farm, Electripnose and Kate Tempest..

‘Enjoyed loudspeka’s set at the squatted library! Good to hear some conscious and political lyrics, much needed in todays scene’. Matt Black.. Cold Cut/ Ninja Tune..

‘Loudspeka. Poet, tireless activist, NGO worker, rapper, instigator of adventures ….and least cynical poets I have come across in the UK….You can find her performing in festivals, squats and demonstrations. Her poetry may reference idealism but its also grounded in hard facts’... Steph Dogfoot (Singapore Slam Champion)

LouD Speka has also collaborated with various EDM producers of various genres… and can do live sets with Ableton Live and other DJs to electronica, eclectic, trip hop, dubstep, drum n bass, soundscapes, alternative hip hop, psy breaks.

She also dabbles in soundscape production herself, and can Dj or play some Live Sequences of her own creation….if needed… and the rest of the merry crew are busy in other aspects of struggle…

Her lyrics are political and mystical. She also touches on the philosophical and meditative with vague comedy stretching to the totally down right surreal. Her conscious spoken word pieces are concerning issues she’s passionate about which include, global justice in world trade (trade justice), peace (ending the UK Support and Promotion of the arms trade) and ending ecocide.
