Die woorde in Bibi Slippers se bekroonde digbundel word nou ook oorgeklank. Kunstenaars Willemien Rust en Jude HarpStar het saamgespan om ’n klompie alternatiewe Afrikaanse toonsettings van die gedigte te skep wat die teks naboots, oormaak en herinterpreteer. Kom luister na ’n program wat Bibi se woordkuns (vasgevang op video) met Jude & Willemien se toonsettings en musikale avonture op harp en klavier kombineer.
