This Friday night Raynie and I are hitting the InZync Poetry Session hard at Amazink Eatery in Kayamandi. After placing second in last year’s final poetry slam, Raynie was asked by Adrian Different (Diff) to be a featured artist at one of the monthly poetry sessions at Amazink. After our duo performance of Gemengde Oorsprong: Hemel in Aardse Kruike (Mixed Heritage: Heaven in Earthen Vessels) at Woordfees (Word Festival) two weeks ago, Diff then asked me to take a featured slot as well.
Together, our slot (s) will constitute 40 minutes of the evening’s procession and will probably feature a bunch of material from Gemenge Oorsprong. I’m also looking forward to debuting some of my as yet unperformed material.
The InZync session has become a regular social and cultural event in Stellenbosch and has become one of the more popular Friday night excursions, especially for those who don’t ascribe to the typical end of week Stellenbosch waterhole culture where top 40 club beats get blasted on loudspeakers and pretty headed blonde girls go prancing down the street in uber short miniskirts.
The Session will be hosted by the coolest soul diva to hit Stellenbosch campus Allison-Claire Hoskins, and will also feature well known hip hop turntablist DJ Eazy. The other featured artist is Jerome Rex. In addition, non-perishable items will be collected for the many who lost their homes in last week’s runaway fire.
Entrance is FREE and there will be an open mic as well, now don’t be shy.
