‘Poetry Jazz: Wax and Gold’ brings together poetry, language and sound experiments around Addis Ababa’s popular art form of poetry jazz, which combines poetry and live music.

A showcase of poems, word experiments, acoustic mappings, visual renderings, essays and reflections in various states of translation and documentation. The book documents six poetry concerts, which took place alternately in Addis Ababa and Berlin and gives voice to the artists in Amharic, English and German. Part of an ongoing collaboration between the Institut für Raumexperimente (Berlin) and Tobyia Poetic Jass (Addis Ababa).
