Renowned, acclaimed and celebrated poet Napo Masheane is poised to set the stage alight with her latest reworked offering titled “Napo Masheane and Friends: Featuring-Ladies In Jazz The Fat Black Women Sing & Beyond Vocal”
Napo Masheane & Friends” is a cumulating showpiece altered from its 2008 run, paying homage to the development and fortification of spoken word. It’s a really different offering to what we’re used to as the production blends spoken word with smooth tunes of Afro-Jazz and soulful spiritual sounds of Gospel. For the first time, Napo Masheane will collaborate on stage with “Ladies in Jazz,” and an all male a ccapella group “Beyond Vocal” which will be infusing their unique Gospel sounds with the oral tradition poetry while “Fat Black Women Sing” will bring a sense of beauty and humor within spoken word.
