This September the effervesscent African poetry slam movement exploded into life across borders, featuring poets from around Southern Africa. It took took place at the Book Café last night on Thursday 19 September as part of Shoko Festival 2013.
The art of live slam poetry and spoken word has taken off in Africa new voices, bold and rebellious, are sweeping across the continent with humour, candour, slang, infectious rhythm with an extraordinary new poetic imagery and built on social consciousness. The movement knows no borders, or boundaries of expression. In Harare, the “House of Hunger” poetry slam movement is a living legend
