Word N Sound Mixtape

The Word N Sound Poetry Mixtape is a global collaboration between South African poets and music producers from all corners of the world. All established and aspiring music producers are encouraged to download the acapella poems for free and put music on them. The challenge is open to all music genres.

Once producers have put music on the poems, we ask that they send them back to us. Please email completed tracks to thabiso.mohare@gmail.com. The best tracks will be featured in the official Word N Sound Poetry Mixtape, which will also be a free download. The rest of the tracks that don’t make it on the official Mixtape will also be made available for free download via the Word N Sound blog. www.wordnsound.wordpress.com

    This is a brilliant idea. Some of poets really produce classical stuff. U knw I was sitting listerning to Masai and I just heard classical music in my ears. All the best to all of them.

    Maybe I can a little music who knows…
