Adisa

Bringing poetry to a mass audience

*

Adisa is an inspired inspirer. His poetry shares knowledge and wisdom which uplifts the black community. Anyone can tell by the response from his audiences that they are truly touched by his works. He has performed to a wide variety of audiences in all sorts of venues from pubs, to universities, to the Hackney Empire.

Adisa's primary desire is to bring poetry to a mass audience. His overflowing energy and dynamism are addictive. He uses words like an artist uses paint, creating pictures on the canvas of his audience’s mind. His vocal rhythms carry the listener on a journey, a journey of reflection, discovery and adventure, wrapped in a blanket of subtle humour.


Adisa has found great demand for his work within the walls of education. He frequently visits schools throughout Europe to deliver performances which have been described as a giant pizza with toppings of African wisdom, observational comedy, life skills, and concert-like call and response routines.

His workshops are revolutionary. The classroom becomes a cosy theatre where every student is the leading actor, and the director is the voice within.
