All set for a show most memorable

Our next Word N Sound Series Live event takes place tomorrow and promises to be one to remember. Word N Sound Founder Thabiso Mohare celebrates his birthday later this month. So…what better way to celebrate than to have him on stage. We’ve heard rumours of an interesting performance experiment complete with an improv band set to take place on the Word N Sound stage tomorrow. He says: “Expect a true word and sound experience.”

If you’ve bought your copy of Monologa, you’ve been counting down the hours and minutes to Rennie Alexander’s showcase. And if you haven’t…where on earth have you been and why would you deny yourself such nice things (luckily for you, you can buy a copy for R100 at the next show)? This storyteller of note who packs wisdom into even the simplest of utterances returns, not only to deliver his annual “The State Of The Nation Address” but also to defend his crown as last month’s King of the Open Mic.

“It’s going to be an amazing show, from the top of the slam that’s already promising to be very competitive. It’s an honour to be part of the showcase line up with one of my favourite poets, Afurakan. It’s been a long time coming. The zealous Masia Dabula never disappoints so it’s looking like an amazing show already. My showcase is not as dramatic as my usual performances; I will be interpreting the chaos that we are all experiencing at the moment in our society, and within that try to find peace and love,” says Rennie.

And then we have Word N Sound’s firebrand, our original Champion of the Open Mic and Word N Sound Perfect Poem Award nominee, Masai Dabula. The Word N Sound fam is looking forward to his raw and hard-hitting performance style and the vivid, honest and resolute writing that has become synonymous with his name.

There is still the hottest Open Mic Poetry League in the country where the best poem walks away with R500 courtesy of BlackCouch Sofserv. Merchandise from Rora will be on sale along with a literary feast of books to add to your bookshelf from Black Letter Media.

Opening the show this month is Eastern cape born MC, Epic aka The ScriptWriter. His debut EP project ‘’Epic’s Cinematography’ was well received both locally and in the UK and scored a 4/5 star rating in a Hype Magazine CD review.

All in all, tomorrow is set to be FIRE! And with the AMAZINGLY talented Andrew Manyika as the host, dare you miss out?
