The Spoken Word
This past week has been a lyrical one for me…hip hop, spiritual poetry and deep house music filled my ears all week and shook me, made me want to close my eyes, listen and dance or groove to the sounds, to the words. I’ve always been attracted to words, and to the people who know how to use them and create beautiful threads with them. Always found someone who can speak well deeply captivating.
Hip hop and its shameless realness, spiritual poetry that takes you down to your core and heart, reminding you of God, and house…house music with its soulful sounds, relentless beats, expressing pain and pleasure. Nothing is more soulful than house :)
Also, two of the spoken word artists I’ve had the pleasure of listening to this week. They need no intro, just please listen to their words.
Amir Sulaiman (make sure you listen to “Dead Man Walking“)
Sófia Servando Baig
What kind of music or poetry moves you? :)
the beat goes on and on and on…dxxx
