Author and rapper Omar Musa launches Killernova book and UK tour
August 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - August 26, 2022 @ 10:00 pm
Award-winning Bornean-Australian author, poet, rapper and artist Omar Musa is back in the UK for the first time since the pandemic to launch his acclaimed book of art and poetry, Killernova. Traversing bushfire-ravaged Australia to Bornean rainforests, Musa explores love, family, food, identity, politics and more.
Touring throughout the UK in August, his unmissable new show is fiery, funny and moving – combining storytelling, poetry and music with the striking visuals of his renowned woodcuts. He will be joined by an array of special guests, luminaries from the UK music and poetry worlds.
