Slip Slaan Toe (Inzync Inner Town Sessions)

It's that time of the month when everyone who is fascinated with words comes out and appreciates the skill which Stellenbosch and Cape Town has been blessed with. Whether you're a Hip Hop Emcee or old school page poet, pull through to Cafe Art ( and come celebrate the word with us.

This month the featured performers are:

Kate Ellis-Cole: This young poet has shown her talents of weaving words into garments which clothe the soul. A resident performer at the Inzync Poetry Sessions open mic, it was a definite that we invite her to feature in order to show us the worlds which she has created in her notebook. Join us as this young poet transforms the stage into her personal canvas.

Jethro Louw: Jethro is a poet from Cape Town, born in Beaufort West in the Eastern Cape. He lives in a township. And he is a poet. He is a ghetto poet, widely regarded as the godfather of spoken word in Cape Town. Jethro uses the power of his words to bring back to life the discontinued heritage of his culture. His work revitalises the legacy of stories and the wealth of storytellers of the KhoiSan people. For centuries, the members of this community have been silenced by the gun, the bullet and the wall. Come through and listen to this poet with exceptional story telling techniques.

Jitsvinger: Jitsvinger (Quintin Goliath) is an Afrikaaps vernacular and award-winning performer who combines poetry, self-composed music and theatre. He started his ascent into the music arena in the mid-90s, eventually releasing his self-written debut album, Skeletsleutel, in 2006. Over and above his solo work, Jitsvinger has also collaborated on various projects since entering the performing arts industry. He has been part of the intercontinental exchange, Rogue State Alliance, between Swiss and South African artists which yielded the albums Rogue State of Mind Parts I and II. His versatility has taken him to stages in various countries including Holland, Switzerland and Taiwan, where he has performed at international festivals such as the Migration Music Festival, Rock the Docks, Funk Em See, the Buskers Festival, and AfroVibes Festival.

Of course, every session has to be concluded with an open mic. Sign-ups will happen at the session. There will only be 5 spots available for the open mic so you'll have to be there early in order to secure some airtime for your words.

A shuttle will be provided from Amazink in Kayamandi and will start running at 18:30 and return back to Amazink from 21:00.

R10 gets you into this event so pull through to Cafe Art( and watch how words take life.
