Daren Kamali at Fresh!

29 03 2011

Fijian performance poet, writer and musician, Daren Kamali will be launching his first book of poems in both Fijian and English as part of the 2011 South Auckland Pacific Arts Summit!

Poems and Songs from the Underwater World is edited by Robert Sullivan with Fijian translation by Apolonia Tamata and illustrations by Leahna Gill.

Kamali says that the book will take readers on an epic journey. “From the depths of the seas to the heights of the sky, island to city, old to new and traditional to contemporary settings with visuals of sea gods, creatures and human ties.”

Created with support from Creative New Zealand, the launch of this exciting new bilingual poetry book has also been supported by the Faculty of Creative Arts, Manukau Institute of Technology.

When: 6pm, Thursday 5 May
Where: Fresh Gallery Otara, Otara Town Centre, South Auckland
