Tenda performs ‘Sally’s Britney’s and Ashley’s’ at Melbourne Spoken Word’s Melbourne Speaks Poetry at White Night 2016.

Tenda is best described as an amalgamation of hip hop and spoken word poetry. He has released 4 mixtapes and is currently working on releasing his 5th. In the past he has opened for The Game, Lloyd and has been on the bill for a number of notable QLD music festivals. As a spoken word poet, Tenda has also performed as a TEDx Speaker at 3 different events. His material manages to pass as carefree and fun whilst being mesmerizing and thought provoking. There is an accessible youthful intelligence here that is both representative of his experience and his generation.
