For one night only we are honoured to welcome on stage an array of talented poets and performers including the Tunisian artist Lilia Ben Romdhane, the Kenyan poet Checkmate Mido who will inspire us with their words in Arabic, English and Maltese. Other performers, like Fatima akka Mahra will also be invited on the spot for a joyful spoken words experience.

The party will continue with the incredible author, musician, mentor and professional rollerskater Fattima Mahdi from London and her partner in crime DJ Shays from Abuja! A blend of Soul, Funk and Afrobeat will surely install the right mood for dancing!

Date: Saturday 4th August
Time: 9pm
Location: Howard Gardens

UPDATE! We are sad to inform you that Checkmate Mido saw his visa rejected by the Austrian embassy in Nairobi. Unfortunately he won’t be with us. The Great Fattima Mahdi accepted to replace him. Transforming the spoken word performance into a real women power night! Everyone is welcome!
