Ismael Musoke puts on a live theatrical performance of his poetry book ‘The Lost Essays’.
At only 20, he has also performed a TEDx talk, release a book that is selling internationally and is also the creator of one of Britain first youth creative hub for Muslim - Ismael is pushing the bar with his art.
The Lost Essays, in essence is a story about a young person growing up in inner city London. The different challenges he faces, what he has to face in order to be successful. From politics, to family to issues, to domestic violence. I have attempted to capture my experiences and articulate them in the way I know best, through poetry. I aim to use my words to encapsulate his audience and get them to think about issues that some may see as a taboo. For Ismael, growing up in London was a tale of two cities; the London I know vs the London the world knows. For me, London hasn’t always been tea and crumpets but after visiting 10 downing street and city hall, it was made clear to me that the government doesn’t care about young working class black kids growing up in inner city London. In that case we need to tell our own stories and shape the future ourselves.
