"Freedom Verse Cafe | Tokyo is the "genesis" of a new evolutionary growth of an idea constantly being modified and morphed into something more real than ideal. Freedom Verse Cafe was a seed a few years ago that began as an online broadcast that focused on the more affluent of performance poets around the world. Poets and artists who continue to promote and distribute positive and progressive content in their art. Starting as a podcast with more than a few hundred thousand listeners globally, and now a live venue for the first time outside the borders of the United States. In this next step, FVC is seeking to spread positive art to other cultures, beginning with Tokyo Japan; a populous that thrives on rich culture and art. Having teamed up with a group of visionaries who share that same interest in art; we will give Japan some of the greatest talent the U.S. culture has to offer from it's more independent of artists. We can change the world, planting one seed...one word or song at a time. Tshombe Founder of Freedom Verse Cafe www.freedomversecafe.com"
