About Jamala Safari

Jamala Safari’s earliest artistic exposure came in the form of theatre at a young age in South Kivu, DRC.

He is the author of a collection of poems called Tam-Tam sings, which he defines as an ‘overflowing river of memories and souvenirs of my half-life, half-heart, in brief, the half left behind me in the country of my birth’. The other half reflects his ambiguous feelings towards South Africa, his new country.
