Outspoken: Creative Community Activism


Audience Suitable for all

Get ready for Tongai Makawa – stage name Outspoken – the blistering creative community activist and organiser, ready to take Universally Manchester Festival by storm.

The powerhouse performer counts emcee, artist and spoken-word workshop facilitator among his many talents and is part of the unique, socially conscious hip hop duo Dialectrik Blue and trailblazing spoken word band Outspoken and The Essence.

He’s toured his searing show around the globe – from southern Africa to the United States, Kenya and Senegal to the Netherlands and Serbia – and his art form has been studied in Canada, the US and Germany.

He now brings his dynamic spoken word performance to Manchester… and it’s one not to be missed.
