KUNSTEFEES: Bards in their stride

Hector Kunene, the formidable South African poet and literary activist hardly needs any Introduction. He is in his element this week, for example as he declaims:

“This week (on the 17th and 18th July) we will be sharing poetry at Kunstefees in Free State Bloemfontein South Africa. I am looking forward to creating a memorable session teaming up with Riku Latti who is one of the great musicians that I'll be sharing words with.

“I simply cannot wait, I am looking forward to blazing our supporters who come from all walks of life and this will be a great opportunity for me to diversify to a musical poetry and blend with flair….let’s get it on!”
