Ngwatilo Mawiyoo

Ngwatilo Mawiyoo’s new research explores the homes and lives of families in rural Kenya. She plans to release a book of poems on the subject in 2012, to follow her critically acclaimed first collection, Blue Mothertongue (2010), which explored similar ideas as they manifest in Nairobi and the African diaspora. In performance she often collaborates with musicians and other artists; exploring their potential to “tell” poetry in an aesthetic she dubs “Puesic” [pew-zik].
