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 Afrohub to headlining, creating and curating platforms for sold out events like Encre Noire, Poetic Jazz Sessions, and producing Sapologie at the Wyndham Cultural Centre as well as The Howler Melbourne to directing and producing his multi nominated, Green Room Award winning solo show at the Arts House 'Tales Of an Afronaut' wāni is slowly emerging as a very promising new artist.
