The Angolan writer José Eduardo Agualusa will participate on Friday (February 19) in the first of this year’s “Poetry Nights” at Café Kultur in the Mozambique-Germany Cultural Institute (ICMA) in Maputo.
At the event, which is scheduled to start at 18.000pm, the author of “O Vendedor de Passados,” “Um Estranho em Goa” and “Pátria Crioula” will talk about Portuguese-language and universal literature.
Mozambican musicians and poets including the composer Miguel Xabindza and writer Deusa D’África will also be present.
Titled “Versos de Amor”, the first ICMA poetry night will also have a second-hand book exchange and the usual open mic session for members of the public to showcase their own artistic creations.
“Let’s talk about love in many ways, the love of our family, the love of life, love of peace, love of our friends. We chose the theme because this is the month of love,” explained Felling Capela, coordinator of the initiative.
“Poetry Nights” brings together, poets, musicians and other artists every third Friday of the month at the ICMA Kultur Café. The project was started 12 years ago to promote love of arts and culture through literature, music and other art forms.
The event starts at 6pm at Goethe Zentrum, Rua Carlos Albers, 89 , in Maputo.Source: ICMA
