A Night of Music & Poetry, feat. Hadassah Edith, Emmanuel Nsingani, and Keyla Ynoa
Run Time: 210 min.
Join Zoetropolis for an intimate night of music and poetry, with Hadassah Edith, Emmanuel Nsingani, and Keyla Ynoa.
Hadassah Edith is a singer/songwriter based in Lancaster, PA. She has a distinctive sound, based on a combination of styles. Her music explores jazz, folk, pop, and indie, with honest lyrics and soulful melodies.
Nsingani, known for his jazz bass playing, was sent to an orphanage after his parents, Congolese Christian ministers, were murdered by the state. He later escaped to the U.S. and is seeking political asylum. Nsingani’s songs are fueled by social and humanitarian concerns that are serious issues in central Africa, by a strong love of his homeland, and by his honest convictions about human rights. His optimistic lyrics include messages of faith, hope, and love—a celebration of the resiliency of the human heart.
Keyla is currently a Senior at Franklin & Marshall College. She is a board member for the Alice Drum Women’s Center, a spoken word poet through LIFT and an on-campus activist. She successfully spear-headed an initiative to bring the first historically Black Greek letter organization to ever exist on F&M’s campus and is using her John Marshall fellowship to research the bodily impact of depression in the Black community. Keyla will be starting off the evening with a set of spoken word poetry.
