(Its a week late but…) The iNombi Workshop’s First Update of the Term

Lesoko Seabe our wonderful host, facilitated a workshop centred around imagery in lyrics and poetry. After a thorough physical and vocal warm up, we all calmly sat in a circle and listened to some soothing , soulful sounds by Nina Simone and Simphiwe Dana. Lesoko then facilitated a discussion where the girls analysed how and why they responded to the music and lyrics.

After a break and a warm cup of soup made by the multi-talented Lesoko, the girls worked on interpreting “ Still I rise” by the iconic Maya Angelou. It was the first time the girls had encountered the poem and they were inspired and exhilarated by it’s imagery and it’s message.

Thank you Maya Angelou for leaving a legacy in your words that will inspire generations of young women to come.
