A WAYFARER’S SONG WITH EFE PAUL AZINO

Sunday 17 March 2019 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm at An Crùbh, Duisdale

One of Nigeria’s best-known performance artists and poets, Efe Paul Azino, visits Skye on a mini tour of the Highlands supported by Scotland’s creative writing centre, Moniack Mhor.

In 2015, he co-founded West Africa’s first international poetry festival, the Lagos International Poetry Festival, which he currently directs. He is also the director of poetry at the annual Lagos Book and Art Festival.

In 2017 he was named as one of the most powerful people in the Nigerian art and culture space by Ynaija.

Efe Paul published his first collection of poetry in 2015 titled For Broken Men Who Cross Often, under Farafina Books. He has appeared at the Berlin Poetry Festival, Johannesburg Arts Alive Festival, Spier International Poetry Festival Cape Town, Taipei Poetry Festival and the Ake Book and Arts Festival amongst others. His poems have been translated into Afrikaans, French, German and Mandarin. He is an Osiwa Poetry Residency Fellow, 2019 Moniack Mhor Poet in Residence, and his second poetry collection, The Tragedy of Falling with Laughter Stuck in Your Throat, is due out this year.
