wāni is a Congolese born, NZ raised and Melbourne based poet with a flare for spoken word. He uses his artistic abilities to serve as a platform in his commitment to the flourishing of life, telling of the untold, as well as the collective empowerment of those peoples too often marginalized and not often enough celebrated.
