Description

This event is dedicated to the rich oral traditions of the Somali language and presents a unique line-up of some of our most important poetic and literary voices. The brilliant young poet, Xasan Daahir Weedhsame, author of Galiilyo (Catastrophe) will read from his recent works (see also Monday 23rd program). He will be joined by Jama Kediye, one of the most revered poets of the 70’s & 80’s who returns to the festival from the Horn by popular demand. Abwaan Mustafa Sh. Cilmi will read from his comedic and insightful poetry; and Saciid Saalax, the renowned and much-loved playwright and poet who has been a major voice in Somali culture since the 1970s will continue this celebration of Somali language with readings from the new edition of his classic work Aqoon iyo Afgarad.
