‘Mahdi’- the first Somali audio Book
Redsea-online cultural foundation is delighted to present you the first Somali audio book, Mahdi. the publication of ‘Mahdi’ in audio book form marks an important transformation in the distribution and reception of Somali Literature. Committed to raising awareness and expanding the availability of literary works to wider audiences, the Publishers have responded to the demand for books in audio format. This venture is part of a commitment to increase the impact and scope of Somali literature; the publishers in partnership with other organisations have also worked on translating Somali novels into other languages, and encouraging youngsters to read, write and present their work through the organisation of literary events and festivals.
'Mahdi' is written by Jama Musse Jama, an ethno-mathematician and founder of the Hargeysa International Book Fair (HIBF) and of Ponte Invisibile (redsea-online.com) publishing company. A historical fiction set in the 1980s when Jama was a student in Hargeysa, the novel is written in the first person, and traces the collective memory of a generation of young students who, for the first time, stood up against the military regime of the Somali Republic. This theme runs throughout the narration of the main character’s adventures and difficulties as a street-child and his experiences of family life and custom.
Kayd Somali Arts and Culture, in collaboration with Redsea-online Cultural Foundation and other partners, are proud to present the annual Somali Week Festival. The festival, an integral part of the Black History Month celebrations, will run from Saturday 22nd to Sunday 30th October 2011 in London. The festival offers the best of Somali arts and culture, both old and new, presenting a mix of events including poetry, literature, music and panel discussions.
Through different artistic expressions, Somali Week Festival has explored a variety of themes over the last few years and has become a widely recognized and anticipated annual event in the UK, particularly among the local Somali community.
Theme of the Year: Translation
This year, Somali Week Festival 2011 will introduce the topic of ‘Translation’. Translated works enable individuals to learn about a particular culture and its people. There is currently a severe shortage of Somali work translated into foreign languages and even fewer examples of world literature translated into Somali. It is this lack of cultural exchange that we wish to address by choosing translation as the theme of the year.

Somaliland: the way forward - Achieving its Rightful International Status, volume one.
2011, edited by Jama Musse Jama, Pisa: Ponte Invisibile (redsea-online.com)
ISBN. 88-88934-18-9 EAN 9788888934181. Pages 150, 20.00 Euro.
Somaliland – the way forward is a set of two-volume books which are the result of a collaborative effort of various observers to document the recent advances in Somaliland in terms of culture, and the inter-related web of peace, development, good governance and economic revival. The books have the ambitious goal of exploring a number of cross-cutting issues, including the state of law and order, justice and rights; national planning; democracy and political maturity, built on centuries old traditions of nomadic Moslem society.
This book wants to draw lessons from the recent past of Somaliland, and intends to contribute to the current debate within the regional and international community about the necessary political commitment to support the recognition of Somaliland; to support its people in realising their aspirations of achieving democracy and building an economic viable state, fully capable of gaining its rightful place in the international arena.
The international community and International NGOs should change their assistance to Somaliland from the provision of humanitarian relief to real development. Invitation to a thought provoking discussion on Somaliland.
Ilays, Nomad, Somaliland Societies Europe, Redsea-online.com, Kayd and other Somaliland organisation are calling on the international community including Dutch NGOs to recognise and build on the ongoing positive developments in Somaliland by changing their assistance to Somaliland from humanitarian relieve to long-term developmental support.
We, the above mentioned organisations, believe that the conditions on the ground in Somaliland are not adequately reflected in the package of assistance extended to Somaliland and are organising one-day event to highlight the inspirational achievements of Somaliland to demonstrate the varying areas which need increased and sustained support.
Kayd Somali Arts and Culture, in collaboration with Redsea-online and Somali and Somaliland Communities, is proud to present the annual Somali Week Festival at Oxford House, Bethnal Green, East London. The festival is part of Black History Month and will run from Saturday 23rd to Sunday 31st of October. The festival offers the best of Somali arts and culture, both old and new, presenting a mix of events including poetry, literature, drama and panel discussions.
We are delighted that this year’s festival will be opened by the the Deputy Mayor of London Richard Barnes. We will present a number of highly esteemed international guests including, poets, playwright and authors to celebrate yet another year of Somali art achievements. Mahamed Ibrahim Warsame ‘Hadraawi’, one of the greatest and most respected Somali poets (known as the Somali Shakespeare) will be leading the way followed by first time attendees, such as, the talented Somali singer and actress Amina Abdilahi, the extremely influential playwright and poet Ahmed Saleebaan Bidde, and the renowned comedian and actor Boon Hirsi, who, despite his recent loss of vision, is still able to perform and make his crowds cheer with joy.
