Playing on Somalia’s historical reputation as a nation of poets, Poet Nation is a new site dedicated to Somali art and culture, with the goal of being “a platform for positive conversation that promotes peace, harmony and traditional Somali values to the modern generation”.
Most contributors so far are Somalians living abroad and contributions are a mix of video posts and text. Take a look and experience some Somalian culture with your own eyes.
