A performance by Norwegian slam poet Sarah Ramin Osmundsen. She gets her inspiration from Bob Marley and Martin Luther King. She uses French, English and Creole to showcase her roots through spoken word.

Even if you don’t understand Norwegian, you can still hear and feel her spoken word poem. I just picked up a few words, but for the rest it was like listing to a piece of music, in words.
