Don Mattera’s Azanian Love Song, is an award winning collection of powerful poems that reflect the poet’s experiences during the 70’, 80’s and the Sophiatown era. Don Mattera’s prolific work has inspired and cultivated the seeds of South African literature, and it is because of this that we celebrate the profound work of our own modern day Shakespeare.
A power pact performance of some of the most exciting poets to emerge out of the Jozi spoken word scene, the line up will include the theatrical voice of the legendary Prophet JD, the smart walking street talking, the amazing Masoja Msiza, the heavenly sounds of the genius Mpho Molikeng, the Bob Marley of poetry Zwesh Fi Khush ,and the great Mak Manaka.
Dr. Don Mattera will be the event’s guest speaker. The show will start at 6pm in Newtown at the old Horror Cafe, now known as Shikisha. The cover fee is R50.
If you are currently in South Africa, join them in celebrating Don Mattera.
