Throughout the month of January, BAMcafe is letting the Fort Greene scene be heard. With programs of spoken word, hip-hop, electronica and R&B, everyone will find something to love.

The series opens Jan. 3 with drummer/DJ Val-Inc, who has worked with former Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid and Tracie Morris. Other highlights include: Graham Haynes (cornet and flugelhorn) and his band reprising their October Symphony Space program (for half the price) of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s compositions (Jan. 4); 23-year-old Tiombe Lockhart (pictured) and her band performing her heady brew of hip-hop, rock and jazz (Jan. 11); Danny Simmons, owner of Corridor art gallery and executive co-producer of HBO’s "Def Poetry," hosting a spoken-word showcase (Jan. 17); singer-songwriter Eisa Davis, whose songs are featured on the Showtime series "Soul Food," delivering her new solo sound filled with lush piano harmonies (Jan. 24); and chamber-pop band Melomane (French for "lover of melody") combining instrumentals and noise (a la Leonard Cohen, Calexico and Can) from their upcoming album "Solresol" on Jan. 25.

There is a $10 food/drink minimum for BAMcafe Friday and Saturday events and a $23 soul food brunch for Sounds of Praise events on Sundays. For a complete schedule of Fort Greene performers and show times at BAMcafe (30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene) call (718) 636-4100 or visit the Web site at www.bam.org.
