Marc Alexandre Oho Bambe called Captain Alexander sows notes and words of resistance and peace, memory and hope. He writes at the tempo of the heart, he inscribes his poems and his steps in the ones, essential, of his mentors and teachers of hope: his poetry sings the range of possibilities, the gift of oneself, the love and the revolt, the quest for the human, “nothing but the human” and the radical refusal to live “arms crossed in the sterile attitude of the spectator”. He has published four books: ADN (Afriques Diasporas Négritude), Le Chant Des Possible (awarded by the Fetkann Poetry Prize and the Paul Verlaine Poetry Prize of the French Academy in 2015), Résidents de la République (Editions La Cheminante, essay written in “state of emergency” in 2016) and De Terre, De Mer, D’amour Et De Feu (Mémoire d’Encrier, 2017).
His first novel, Diên Biên Phù, was published in March 2018 by Sabine Wespieser Editeur, along with his new collection of texts Ci-gît mon coeur, (Editions La Cheminante). Founding member of Collectif On A Slamé Sur La Lune, Captain Alexandre is also a columnist (Africultures, Mediapart, Le Nouveau Magazine Littéraire) and intervenes in schools and universities. Marc Alexandre Oho Bambe was made Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérite, by presidential decree of May 2, 2017. Captain Alexandre slams his lyrics on stages around the world.
