Shakila Azizzada Podcast

Mimi Khalvati, Shakila Azizzada, Zuzanna Olszewska


This podcast features the work of the Afghan poet Shakila Azizzada. The recording includes 12 different poems and is about 32 minutes long. Each poem is read first in English translation by Mimi Khalvati and then in Dari by Shakila herself.

The poems are read in the same order as they appear in the chapbook of Shakila's poems that we published in 2012, followed by some additional poems. Click here to buy the chapbook or to download it in PDF format.
