Review: Word N Sound Soweto Theatre Experience

This year Word N Sound marked Women’s Day with a special show at the Soweto Theatre.

The fam was just as excited as we were and set Twitter alight in the run up to the day.

And finally we were off, getting started with an open mic that gave us a taste of what Soweto-based poets were up to and gave the very many new faces in the audience a chance to hear what Word N Sound has been getting up to.

The stage was warm and welcoming and the audience was more than ready to hear from Mandi Poefficient Vundla, Myesha Jenkins, Conelius Jones, Vuyelwa Maluleke, Mutle Mothibe and Gratitude Fisher.

And of course, Planet Lindela did what they do best…absolutely killed the stage with their blazing performance.

Soweto came through in a BIG way and showed so much love, it really was a humbling experience.
