Introducing Bahati Mabala's Poetic Book!

"True poets have a distinctive voice. In this his first book of poetry, Bahati Mabala crafts the personal and political in a very distinctive way, whether speaking with the voice of a raped Congolese girl, or exploring his own relationships in his life. He ranges from the directly political as he speaks of Africa and America, the poor and the rich, to very personal thoughts about his own life. In every case he brings a refreshing perspective, combining rapper lyrics with more conventional poetry, but always with a critical eye, a self critical eye which peels away the layers of the onion as shown in one of his poems. These are not poems for the easygoing, be prepared for the sting of tears as you peel the onion for yourself, and you will be well rewarded."
