Gaarriye Podcast

Maxamed Xaashi Dhamac 'Gaarriye', W N Herbert


This podcast features the poems of Maxamed Xaashi Dhamac 'Gaarriye' from Somaliland, translated by W.N.Herbert and Martin Orwin, with Maxamed Xasan 'Alto'. The recording includes three different poems read first in Somali by Gaarriye himself and then in English translation by the British poet W.N.Herbert. The poems are read in the same order as they appear in the chapbook of Gaarriye's poems which we published in 2008.  Click here to buy the chapbook or to download it for free as a PDF.
