le frere

wāni is a Congolese born, NZ raised and Melbourne based poet with a flare for spoken word. He uses his artistic abilities to serve as a platform in his commitment to the flourishing of life, telling of the untold, as well as the collective empowerment of those peoples too often marginalized and not often enough celebrated.

From hosting at Pan Afrikan Poets Café to headlining, creating and curating platforms for sold out events like Encre Noire, producing Sapologie at the Wyndham Cultural Centre and more recently producing and directing his first solo show at the Arts House wāni is slowly emerging as a very promising new artist.
