Riyaadh Sarang | CPT
Riyaadh comes from many places and has been through many journeys growing up – some which were painful and others which were defining and this along with the need to have a voice when he was silenced by powers bigger than his own – lead to him writing poetry at a young age and through poetry he have found hip hop and battle rap which he also avidly takes part in. He believes in making art that not only discusses a theme but actually puts an audience in the discussion of that theme through vivid imagery. He has been Fortunate to meet many important people in the poetry community here in Cape Town that have helped guide him along my way notably so – Zaytoen Domingo, Rene Van Niekerk, Gail Van Breda , Siphokazi Jonas , Jitzvinger , Adrian Van Wyk And Toni Stuart, who all played a pivotal part in helping me win the Book Festivals Cape Town poetry slam last year.
The journey continues here..
