i am from paris as well and last time i saw LKJ live, it was in Montreuil last summer organised by "café la pêche". You should either contact them or you should send an email directly to LKJ website.
If you like LKJ you should buy records on his website, very cheap!
Why do you want to get in touch with him? Do you want to organise concert?
Cheers,

of course I like his music, but I'm also very interested in his writings. It's a really good poet. This kind of poetry is inusual in the musical area. I have some projects about the Dub Poetry movement.

I thought Benjamin Zephaniah was generally excluded from the term 'Dub Poet' because he didn't put his stuff to music :?:

Anyhow, people in the UK can find out for themselves on Sunday when his documentary "The OBE Is Not For Me" airs.

He's just been plugging it on Breakfast TV, saying he would have turned down the award even if it didn't have the word 'Empire' in it.

The programme includes a meeting with some West Indian (WWII) ex-Servicemen who by contrast were proud to receive the honour. But Benjamin cited education as the reason for the difference in attitude, saying that previous generations growing up in Jamaica were denied knowledge of their African culture and descendants.

Benjamin did, however, seem keen to show that his opposition and distrust related mainly to governments and not to the UK in general, mentioning that he was proud of the work he performs for the British Council in promoting the country's multiculturalism.
