Performance with Fatima Moumouni Str8 Up: Word on the Street

As former US president Barack Obama says, “The thing about hip-hop today is it’s smart, it’s insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable.” Issues of integration, empathy and intercultural dialogue are pre-eminent in the current age of discord. In this special event, writers, musicians and performance poets take to the stage to highlight the kindred spirit linking poetry, rap and hip-hop, and wrestle with the concerns that afflict our times. Taking part ist Fatima Moumouni.
