Profile: Amerah Saleh

Amerah Saleh, Spoken word artist

Amerah Saleh is a spoken word artist born and bred from Birmingham. Her Muslim Yemeni roots give her space to get lost and found on multiple occasions between identity. She is the cofounder of Verve Poetry Press and a Producer at Free Radical as part of The Beatfreeks Collective. Amerah has performed all around Europe and has released her first collection called ‘I Am Not From Here’ this year. Her work touches on identity, womanhood, religion and the obscure idea of belonging only to one place.
