I’ll be performing with a 3-piece band (a lead guitarist, bassist and percussionist) for an hour-long production, just those elements nje of music and time have made me surpass any effort I’ve put into a poetry performance before, it will be like no other.
I grew up shy and inexpressive. Poetry helped in unleashing those shackles, it helped me find my voice and enabled me to shout it out. So, poetry is of extreme importance to me as it allows those who are/may be voiceless, to find a voice and a platform to just shout.
“We’ve come together to have a conversation about love as black men living in South Africa today. I’m excited to hear love stories and share love stories and to grow together through the beauty of our love and our lies. ” – Xabiso Vili
