Nick Makoha & Roger Robinson present a unique show of poetry and music


The Mixtape is a cocktail Poems about music, poems about love, poems of protest and of exile, monologues and duet poems… all tied together through an unforgettable soundtrack of songs, from Afrobeats to hip-hop, from reggae to soul. With enduring friendship at its centre, hear poems which leap back and forth in time, giving voice to the universal struggle to carve out personal and political identities
