National Theatre Wales' De Gabay: Cerys Matthews on Culture Show

The National Theatre Wales is preparing for the premiere of De Gabay, a performance of poetry and music based around the lives of the Somali community in Cardiff.

On 3 March, parades, house visits and a "parliament of poetry" will be at the heart of the event at locations across Butetown.

Cerys Matthews met the Somali poets behind the idea for the BBC's Culture Show, who hope it will help break down stereotypes.
