Badilisha Poetry Radio is the only poetry podcast platform exclusively dedicated to the voices of Africa and its Diaspora.
Each week, we present a range of extraordinary new voices and poetic genres. Our intention is to platform who and what Africa has to say to itself and the rest of the world. As such, we are constantly seeking new poets to showcase and would therefore welcome your recommendations of Pan-African poets that are not yet featured. Please submit them here.
Badilisha is a project of the Africa Centre.
*Badilisha: is a Kiswahili expression denoting change, exchange and transformation.
