It was a night of artistic expression, fusing poetry, rap, jazz music and exceptional dancing skills at Thapong Visual Arts Centre on Saturday as a group of performers converged to demonstrate and celebrate their talents.

From a young man who ricited a complementary poem to honour the Three Dikgosi, to the 16- year-old girl who performed with tears rolling down her cheeks, different performers demonstrated good skill and passion.

First to set the tone was Lere ‘ Delereal’ Dingalo with his rhythmic piece I Dream Of Peace.
The young man expressed fear and frustration that the world goes through due to unending wars especially in the Middle East. He laced his poem with words that give hope.
His audiences cheered as he descended down with a soft bass towards the end of the piece.
    A little later a female poet by the name of Mimi upped the ante with another smooth flowing poem that sought to elaborate the challenges that continue to haunt human kind. She metaphorically likened the hardships to dodging bullets in gangland.
Her crowd seemed to enjoy it most when she became emotional at the end of her poem.
