ZAN at Jazz Café is the second charity event of its kind where pioneers of UK hip hop come together to raise awareness of Autism. This never seen before line-up will showcase brand new material alongside hip hop classics from Roots Manuva, Blak Twang, Skinnyman, Klashnekoff, Rodney P and MC D. MC D ‘Autistic’
Autistic written by MC D for the ZAN charity event, celebrates the difference not indifference of Autism and dispels important misconceptions.
Zain’s Autism Network (ZAN) was founded in 2006 by Matt Robinson father of four and film maker whose eldest son Zain has ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder). ZAN raises funds for charities who are involved with Zains ongoing therapy and treatment.
Back in 2001 Matt Robinson’s love of hip hop inspired him to make a documentary about the then UK hip hop scene. While filming, Matt developed friendships with some of the artists he interviewed such as Rodney P & Skitz, Skinny Man and MC D. Fortunately for Matt these artists embraced the opportunity to support him and his family’s cause and are wholeheartedly spearheading the second ZAN charity event. Matt expresses his overwhelming appreciation saying: “stepping up to support this cause is a great reflection of how the UK hip hop community, truly care about such important and wide reaching issues”.
All proceeds from the ZAN charity event will be donated to Zain’s Bio-medical treatment as well as the charities Osteopathic Centre for Children and Caudwell Children both of whom play a major role in the ongoing treatment of thousands of children.
