A-Slam-Baba-Luba...a-slam-bam-u! (Jonathan Teuma)
Jonathan Teuma (stage name 'Yanito') brings us ‘¡A-slam-baba-luba…a-slam-bam-bú!’, a punchy collection of slam poetry which begins in the thick of a seemingly endless economic crisis which has to be faced with “amor, conflicto y mucho cachondeo.”
‘The poems are assertively multilingual, bringing together Llanito, Andaluz, English and even Portuguese (often in the same line) in a way that will horrify local purists and prudes. Teuma’s virtuoso way with language also extends to clever wordplay and a knack for rapid shifts of register to suit the logic of a poem.'
