Martin Daws: Young People’s Poet Laureate for Wales
Young People’s Laureate for Wales Martin Daws will be the main MC and compere on the main stage at this year’s Kaya Festival!
An electrifying poet whose live sets blend free musicality and innovative lyricism in a unique improvised theatre, Martin Daws’ work explores life, nature and who the hell we think we are, anyway! Martin’s poetry shows a rare breadth of style and voice, and he has also been introduced to an audience as ‘a thoroughly nice man’. Broadcast on numerous occasions, Martin has published in international journals, and performed extensively around the UK and Ireland. His musical collaborations with Electro-Acoustic Composer Rob Mackay have toured internationally, taking video of Martin in performance and recordings of his voice to multi-media performances in 4 continents. Martin will be on stage performing a specially commissioned poem called ‘Kaya’ for the festival.
