Roots and Branches

Electro Acoustic Poetry

Poems by Yoliswa Mogale, Mark Espin, Mphutlane wa Bofelo, Myesha Jenkins, Siphiwe ka Ngwenya, Chantal-Fleur Sandjon, Khanyi Magubane, Ike Mboneni Muila, Lesley Perkes, Lionel Murcott, Phillippa Yaa de Villiers, and Allan Kolski Horwitz. Soundscapes by James de Villiers.

This follow up to Purple Light Mirror in the Mud features not only the Botsotso Jesters and Lionel Murcott but other equally accomplished performance poets whose subject matter ranges across the gamut of South African realities and effectively challenges the complacent and self-satisfied.

James de Villiers again creates the vibrant electronic soundscapes that provides such an inspiring counterpoint to the verbal rhythms.
