Berber Poetry Night

Hikma will be hosting a Berber Poetry event on Friday, November 18th. Four Rif-Dutch poets will be reciting their own work. The event will commence with an introduction by Dr. Martin Kossmann (Leiden University). Dr. Khalid Mourigh will be chairing the event.

Our featured poets will be: Mimoun Essahraoui, Naima Farisi, Ahmed and Ali Amazigh Essadki

Additionally, works by the poets Mohamed Chacha and Ahmed Ziani will also be presented. These poets each had a great impact on the evolution of Riffian poetry in the Netherlands.

Poems will be provided with a Dutch translation.

This event will be held in the Plexus building in Leiden (Kaiserstraat 25) and will start at 19:00 and end at approximately 22:00.
