Germane Marvel – Host, Orii Jam

Germane Marvel is a writer, musician and facilitator. He is an MC and host of Orii Jam in East London, and part of South East London’s Steam Down. Germane writes philosophy in his spare time and has previously co-written a beatbox musical that was adapted for the BBC.

“I am an Angolan/Swiss artist, based in east London. I graduated with a degree in audio engineering.  I am natural performer with five years of professional singing experience. Specialising in Soul, R&B and Blues, after singing for several years I deceided to go on an adventure and applied for the Voice of Switzerland 2020, where I reached the semi-finals. With that experience I started officially singing at events. My ability to use the different colours of my voice – smooth and strong belt and controlled vibrato – gives my voice a warm and strong character, which makes my act memorable.”

Introducing… Orii Jam – LIVE

Looking for a Sunday afternoon vibe? We’ve got you covered. Ori is the Yoruba word used to describe the vessel that is able to process conscious thought, or in other words, the soul. Orii is the biggest freestyle jazz night, that enables the best musicians and artists in London town to connect in carefully curated sonic spaces. Orii is also a platform for new artists to perform, engage, and inhabit their true Orii.  Run by the artist Neue Grafik, this session is about love, sharing and caring. Closing IT2023, we’ll be joined by the Orii Jam crew, for the ultimate live jazz session.
