Dub Poets In Their Own Words

Dub Poets In Their Own Words

Dub Poets in Their Own Words (APS PUblications, 2017) is a journey into dub poetry from the dub poets’ point of view. Contrary to other publications on this controversial art form, it proposes to let the practioners of the genre speak. Dub poetry has been studied from numerous methodological angles and has been plagued by debates and controversies over the years. Very rarely have dub poets been asked to give their opinion on their art form.
The interviews collected in this book were conducted over an eighteen-year period in Britain, Canada, Jamaica and the USA. The poets who were interviewed are Yasus Afari, Klyde Broox, Dreadlockalien, Mbala, Mutabaruka, Cherry Natural, Kokumo Noxid, Oku Onuora, Moqapi Selassie, and Malachi D Smith.
