Ehalakasa Slam II
Sun, May 25. 6:00PM - 9:00PM
Nubuke Foundation 1st Freetown Link, Accra, Ghana
Poetry Slams have become an integral part of the Ehalakasa programme; the last one was in March and it put the spotlight on ANDY, D. K. and CHIEF MOOMEN; the first 3 tops. Poets have 3 minutes to make an impression in 3 separate rounds without props, costumes or musical accompaniment. This ensures that artists create more, hone their skills and explore diverse themes.
The May session will include the influential poets: PAUL 100% FORJOE, POETRA ASANTEWA, SELORM AMEZA, ANTIOK, ADRIAN, BRENNAN, SEDINAM, FRANK B, ATO KWAMENA, SAILOR and more. About 12 poets will compete for the first place prize of 20,000 Ghana Pesewas, country wide bragging rights, and the chance to be on the FINAL SLAM bout of which the winner will visit Abu Dhabi by courtesy, Paul D. Rodgers.
The event promises to mix a diversity of performances staying true to the motto "It Lives In Us", as such it features guitarist KUNLE! Check his latest hit here: http://soundcloud.com/kunle-3/igba-adara-kale
Ehalakasa, held at Nubuke Foundation every last Sunday of the month, is an amazing platform that brings together word artists, musicians, performers of all standards and art enthusiasts/lovers from all circles to share in the spirit of creativity and boundless passion.
Venue: Nubuke Foundation, East Legon, behind Mensvic Hotel
