Mutle Mothibe is a Word N Sound 2011 Top 10 finalist whose imprint on the South African poetry scene cannot be missed. His mixture of sensuality, surrealism and mythology has left a soothing vibration in the ears of many spoken word enthusiasts. He has also become famous for his one-man productions which fuse music, choreography, poetry and hint of Marshall arts. His showcase at Word N Sound promises to be a memorable one.
Dikson is a ferocious young poet whose metaphors cut like box-cutters through all the bullshit we’ve become used to. His message, let there be love. His fashion sense, dubious – Teeth Records (UK)
Dikson was born in Zimbabwe and moved to the UK in 2000, he got into slam poetry in Brighton whilst at university. Dikson has been on a European tour performing in the UK and at the World Wide Words and My World Images festivals in Denmark.
Love Glori is female soul duo from urban Johannesburg. The name LOVEGLORI is simply a combination and translation of their names, LERATO: a Tswana name meaning LOVE, and NOZUKO: a Xhosa name meaning GLORY. Together, these remarkable young women possess a mutual and spiritual love for music. The root of their passion for music and life is their love for God, their families and fellow beings. They draw inspiration from their individual experiences and the people and environment around them. This is then transformed into a fusion of soul, jazz and an element yet to be named.
