Creative Conversations: Ribka Sibhatu and André Naffis-Sahely
In celebration of the publication of Aulò, poet Ribka Sibhatu and translator André Naffis-Sahely take part in Creative Conversations. An Eritrean poet whose work deals with matters pressingly relevant today, Sibhatu's work explores identity and represents a modern, multicultural, multilingual Europe that includes cultures and heritage from outside Europe. The complex lyric and storytelling tropes that her work engages with enriches, renews and sustains an oral poetic tradition from the Horn of Africa. Whether it is her activist poems discussing migrant experience or those of her personal journey, her passion for these stories is infectious and captivating. Sibhatu will be joined by André Naffis-Sahely who has worked closely with her for over 10 years, translating her poetry to bring it to the attention of English speaking audiences. They will be in conversation with Colin Herd of University of Glasgow.
