Johannesburg performance-poet Katleho Kano Shoro is also co-editor of "The Spoken Word Project, stories travelling through Africa". This is her first published collection of poems.
"Katleho Kano Shoro shines in her individual claiming of voice and honouring of her ancestral roots. Her poetry speaks with a profound sense of conviction that encourages others to do the same, she agitates our soil not for sensational effect but to liberate what healing resources may lie buried in the dust of our past. She calls us, her readers, to soak our dehydrated-soul-selves in the restorative rains of imagination, to bask in the light of integrity and to delight in the power of story." Malika Ndlovu, performance-poet and author of "Truth is Both Spirit and Flesh"
