Featuring Brandon Wint reppin Edmonton
Hosted by Ian Keteku

BRANDON is a poet, spoken word artist, and prominent teacher of writing, currently living in Edmonton, Alberta. He is ,perhaps, best known for his ability to rousingly articulate the mysteries of love, romance and kindness in his poetry. He is a poet who uses the potential of writing and speaking to articulate the beauties of the world, and where possible, the silver-linings that underscore the ugliness and struggle that is inherent to the human condition. His typically soft-spoken, musical and delicately-rendered spoken word pieces have garnered attention and admiration from audience members across Canada and in far-away places like England and Australia, where his life and work have been showcased on radio and in print. He is also a founding member of highly-accomplished spoken word troupe, The Recipe. As a member of the troupe, Brandon, along with members Ian Keteku, Ikenna Onyegbula and Komi Olafimihan,has performed across Canada, including memorable sets at Vancouver Island Music Festival, House of Paint Urban Arts Festival, and Hillside community festival, among others. Beyond his professional and competitive accolades, which include two national championships in the arena of poetry slam (2009 and 2010), and publication in Canada's first comprehensive anthology of contemporary black poetry-- The Great Black North, in 2012--- Brandon is beloved as a poet and teacher because his work presents a subtle but discernible passion.
