Lisette Ma Neza


LISETTE MA NEZA is known for her sharp pen and sweet voice. In her mix of poetry and music she searches for her own identity, her gender, her history and place in the world. In 2017 she became the first woman and the first person of colour and the first Dutch-speaking Belgian Champion Slam Poetry. In 2018 and 2019 she toured with her performance and became Vice-European Champion for Slam Poetry in Paris and Vice-World Champion in Rio de Janeiro.

Now she travels the world like a troubadour with her music and poetry before returning home to the Netherlands. Her performances balance between painfully direct and amorous naivety and they often grab the audience by the throat. Born in the Netherlands she is currently living between the Netherlands and Belgium.
