What happens when poets from SA, Namibia, Canada and Belgium are challenged to share a stage with musical genius Lerato Lichaba?
The Response Poem round is one we eagerly await each year at the Word N Sound Poetry League Finale. The finalists are given a list of poems that they are asked to respond to in any way.
For Round 2 of the slam finale, the finalists were asked to collaborate with any other artists to truly bring their poems to life…And boy did these gentlemen bring it!
This is what Masai Sepuru, Clear, Soetry, Linda Masilela and Mjele Msimang brought to the opening round of the Word N Sound Poetry League slam finale.
We’ve gathered some videos just to whet your appetite for #TheCosmosTribe brought to you by the Magnum Opus collective.
Of course there is no such thing as a “Perfect Poem” but it doesn’t hurt to honour poems that come pretty close.
