‘Unless You’re Free’ by Benjamin Solah and inspired by Mario Savio. Performed as the co-host of the Percy Shelley Poetry Slam on March 13, 2012 at Dexter Bar/Cafe, Clifton Hill.

The editor of Melbourne Spoken Word, Benjamin Solah has taken the liberty to post a video of his own as the second ‘Video Verse’ entry to the website. But if you are a spoken word artist in Melbourne, or are performing in Melbourne and would like to feature your video on the website, please email [email protected] with a YouTube or Vimeo link. We prefer Melbourne artists and videos that are done with some degree of professionalism of live performances or studio videos.
