Multi-talented artist provides a peek of his new creative path
Akwasi is a true storyteller, whether using rap, poetry or television to do so, and excels at all. His greatest claim to fame is as member of rap duo Zwart Licht, but he has also released a solo album, Daar Ergens, with his take on the work of Bram Vermeulen. He also graduated from the drama academy in Maastricht, and is a frequent and popular guest on prime-time Dutch talk show De Wereld Draait Door. At Explore, Akwasi will be featuring yet another new aspect of his work – poetry – with a reading from his new poetry collection Laten we het er maar niet over hebben (Let’s not talk about it) and an interview about his work. The programme is a collaboration with Wintertuinfestival (Nijmegen).
