"Namaya is the high wire performance artist of the spoken word scene." M. Horowitz.
GOD SEX POLITICS
world tour 2006
Sunday 26th November
doors open 7pm
Fresh from touring the US, Japan, Ireland and now New Zealand, Namaya will make one Christchurch appearance only at the Wunderbar in Lyttelton on Sunday 26th November. Described by The Aquarian as
“…One of the stellar voices of the spoken word scene with his outrageous, bawdy, sensuous stories and vibrant political satire.”
Namaya has performed in leading venues, universities, and clubs in New York and throughout the US since the l970’s.He has been a featured poet at the leading clubs in NYC - Nuyorican Cafe and Bowery Poetry Club, as well as with venues and colleges in the East Coast as a solo artist and with his band the Jazz Beat Blues Poetry Ensemble. He has been published in numerous magazines and has two collections of poetry to his credit: Eros to Godhead and the most recently published GOD SEX POLITICS.
Namaya & Jazz Beats completed a successful tour of Denmark, Holland, and England at the end of 2005. In 2006 he is taking his GOD SEX POLITICS solo show to various locations throughout the US, including NYC, and internationally to Ireland, Japan, & New Zealand. GOD SEX POLITICS is a mix of political satire, music and video: Amerika Uber Alles; Men of Enron; a bit of love/lust with Necrophilia Blue and Love Junkie; Land Mine Hop; Jazz Detective story, and a mix of other politically incorrect and wry works. Often the audience is astonished and bemused, but delighted. The show is a mix of music, guitar, improvisation and story telling.
