Just ADD Sound w/feat Poet Tantra-zawadi and guest Percussionist Jimmy Lopez 20Nov2014

Share Button

What is sound?  sound/noun

Vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person’s or animal’s ear.

For the 3rd edition of Just ADD Sound our goal was to entice you, excite you and stimulate you with vibrations traveling from the hearts and spirits of those who have chosen to share their ART with us in a variety of formats.

As will all things live, the November 20, 2014 show took on a personality of its own. In the studio we had our featured poet Tantra Zawadi, who performed some incredibly deep and stirring pieces for us, special guest, Percussionist Jimmy Lopez, founder of Soulful Cypher, Wyse Rodriguez and Soulful Cypher’s resident DJ, Saint Sanchez and Visual Artist Warren Bryant. Co-producer and resident DJ, Soul opened up the show with JAS’ adopted theme song, Love De-Luxe – Here Comes That Sound Again (Extended Mix – Long Version).

In between music, live percussions, live poetry and the interview, we slipped in a few pieces we wanted to share with our audience.

“About TANTRA-zawadi”
By Jack Cooper – Production Editor, Poets Wear Prada

A work of love — what Tantra-zawadi makes — what she achieves through her art, envisioning, she says, the “unseen reality.” A sublime soulfulness suffuses it, pungent like incense, subtle sinuous trans-formation shape-shifts as a genie might, rustled by a reedless wind. Its sizzle-cymbaled syzygy unites that, familiarly met, we thought we knew — blindness preceding a first kiss, bittersweet after — with a mastery of mood, trilled to transcendence, encouraging independence, womanly presence and voice, to embrace experience alongside others.

Comprehensive her exploration, with an awareness 360 and beyond, Tantra addresses the world and its poetry — poet to poet, enjoined in the present, evolving, through media, traditional and new, in print and performance, on the internet and off: visualizing word for the page, spoken on stage or before the camera, shaped to accompaniment by music — never diminished. Hers is a responsibility taken on behalf of others. Whom Brooklyn began enlivens a world; Tantra the artist is now sought and received.

We attempted to keep to the official interview questions during the show. Luckily that the dimensions of the artist allowed for us to veer off course to add some impromptu questions, which Tantra graciously answered.

Here is the official interview with Tantra:

Just ADD Sound (JAS) Looking at the diversity of your artistic interests and passions, can you tell us how you got started as a poet? What lead you to take pen to paper and share your experiences?

Tantra Zawadi (TZ) It began in elementary school (third grade to be exact), when I won third place in a poetry contest sponsored by a local bank.  I loved to read from an early age, and poetry naturally resonated with me.  It was soul-stirring and cutting edge.  It had a unique rhythm, and touched upon sensitive subjects that folks were either unable or unwilling to speak of.  Theirs were voices of social awareness and insight that might otherwise have gone unheard.  Poetry that addressed cultural and social experiences in America that had a direct impact upon me and the black power babies in my community! I felt uplifted and inspired, so I took pen to paper and regularly began to write in my teens.  I never imagined that I would one day author a book of poetry, or meet some of my greatest poetic inspirations like Gil Scott-Heron, Abiodun Oyewole or Sonia Sanchez.  I didn’t see this coming at all.


Just ADD Sound (JAS) You’re involved in mentorship and advocacy through your art. What causes are most dear to you? Where do you find that your art has the greatest impact in reaching people?

Tantra Zawadi (TZ) I enjoy facilitating poetry workshops with young people, and also working with empowerment organizations like Girl-Child Network Worldwide (GCN) and The Senegal-America Project (SAP).  I am a mentor for GCN founded by human rights advocate/poet/author and director, Princess Muzvare Betty Makoni, and share my creativity to raise awareness about issues impacting women and girls.  Partial proceeds from my books go to GCN, and this past April, I received the honor of Pan African Princess by Princess Muzvare Betty Makoni and Princess Deun Adedoyin-Solarin (Chair, Board of Trustees/Official Spokesperson for GCN) at the official fundraising event in London.

The Senegal-America Project (an endeavor of global citizenship that brings people together through education, poetry, music and art), is also very dear to me.  I love working with SAP founders/musicians Tony Vacca and Massamba Diop, and all of the people that are a part of the SAP family.  Whether we are performing and teaching in Senegal or touring in America, we are connected!

 At the moment, I believe my art has the greatest reach through music.  Music transcends cultural differences and is something we all understand and vibe with.  I love receiving feedback from people around the world who listen to my house music collaborations who wouldn’t otherwise know my work.  I’ve been a house music supporter for many years, and am thrilled to be on board as an artist.  House music is one of my greatest passions! 

 

Just ADD Sound (JAS) Looking through your expansive discography, you’ve worked with incredible producers and artists. What was a dream come true for you? What artist has inspired you and influenced you to do something that you wouldn’t consider doing otherwise?

Tantra Zawadi (TZ) Working with Josh Milan on the Raw Honey Poets “Happy” project, was an unexpected gift.  He is easily one of the most influential and skillful artists in “house,” and most definitely on my list of “dream” producers to work with.  I have also been blessed to work with amazingly gifted producers like Groove Assassin, Jonny Montana and Djeff Afrozila (just to name a few), who believe in me.  I am so grateful for them all, and the supporters who keep house music alive.

Three artists that have inspired me to do something I wouldn’t consider otherwise are GCN founder and human rights advocate, Princess Muzvare Betty Makoni, poet/author/playwright Malika Ndlovu and singer/songwriter/artist Ernestine Deane.  Princess Muzvare Betty Makoni inspired me to do something different with my art.  She encouraged me to use my gifts in a mentoring capacity thereby allowing my life and creative experiences to serve as an inspiration to the girls of GCN.   I am proud of their outstanding and ongoing achievements.  Go girls!!

Malika Ndlovu (Badilisha Poetry X-Change Festival) and Ernestine Deane both inspired me to expand my vision to include global collaborations.  My journey to Cape Town, South Africa in 2009 as a participant in the Badilisha Poetry X-Change Festival (and where I spent time with Malika and Ernestine), was the beginning of an amazing journey into the possibilities of global collaborations.  When I returned stateside, I began working with several house music producers in South Africa and around the world.  These powerful women brought me to the Motherland in thought, deed and poetry.  They transformed my life and helped me to grow more fully as an international artist and conscious being. Meeting them has prepared me well for the work I am doing presently with The Senegal-America Project.

 

Just ADD Sound (JAS) Besides poetry/spoken word what other forms of art do you use to spread the message of love? What art forms are you exploring to develop further to get the message out?

Tantra Zawadi (TZ) I directed two short documentaries (“Girl:  The Film,” Volume I and “A Silent Genocide:  A Brief Insight into HIV/AIDS”).  The latter was created as part of a poetry presentation I did at Stony Brook University for World AIDS Day in 2009; and “Girl:  The Film” (A message from Ardija Red-Cloud), was created as a way to mentor girls by providing uplifting messages from female elders in our community.  There are so many ways to send messages of love, and I am still discovering them.  Not trying would be problematic for me. 

 

Just ADD Sound (JAS) What’s the process like working with a producer? How involved are you in the development of a project, a release?

Tantra Zawadi (TZ) Each experience is different, but with advances in technology, it is really easy to work with producers from other countries because you can send your work back and forth on-line.  I am very much involved in the recording process and care about what I present.  I want to hear what “our” project sounds and looks like before it is officially released, and appreciate producers who value what I bring and are committed to the best musical balance for my voice/stories.  While, talent and skill are naturally essential, so are the relationships we share as artists.  Mutual respect is high on my list for a fulfilling creative exchange.      


Just ADD Sound (JAS) Your poetry is available in print, as well as poetry over music. How different is the print publishing process from a digital release? What, if any, challenges are there in getting the word out about your printed work?

Tantra Zawadi (TZ) Digital releases are undoubtedly more immediately accessible, but there’s something about actual books (the paper, the binding, the imagination and the words in front of you), that are so precious to me.  I just love to read, but see that more and more people are connected to their smart phones and want to do what they do on the go.  One of my books “Gathered at Her Sky,” is available for download on iTunes and I can see more of that happening in the future along with my books in print (available at most on-line bookstores). 

I am glad that some of my music collaborations are presented in a variety of formats (vinyl, CD and digital download), and like that my work is accessible in different ways.

Social networking is essential as well as solid promotions, book-signing events and frequent performances.  I bring product with me to my live events, but the greatest forms of support are the people that love and believe in me.  That is the absolute best! 

 

Just ADD Sound (JAS) What’s next for Tantra as a poet, artist, mentor, and advocate?

I have an adventurous spirit, and am open to where love leads.  You know that special place where miracles are born and there is room for personal growth?  That space where dreams come true and possibilities emerge?  I don’t like to plan every moment of my life or anticipate my every move. I like to #LiveLoveLife and watch it unfold.  So, stay tuned!

Thank you for your beautiful support.  I appreciate you all!

Peace and Love,

Tantra-zawadi

Just Add Sound Travels the Globe (November 6, 2014)

Share Button

Thursday, November 6, 2014 #JustADDSound took to the airwaves to bring global influenced and influencing artists to share their words and sound!

Host, RescuePoetix, read a piece from John S. Blake’s first full collection of poems, published by Urban Publishing NYC:  Beautifully Broken, “On Teaching Chess to my Daughter”

About John Blake: John Blake is a Teaching Artist currently residing in Virginia and studying Creative Writing and African American Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. Blake was a finalist at the National Poetry Slam (2007 Austin TX) and has been published in ARDOR, Naugatuck River Review of Narrative Poetry, Adobe Walls Literary Journal, Two Bridges Review, Red Fez and Malpais Review and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Blake has traveled the United States, reading his work and teaching.

Following John Blake was percussionist, writer and poet Tony Vacca. We heard “On the Edge” and “Word to the Warriors” from Vacca’s 2002 CD release Zen Rant. Selecting pieces to play from this stirring streetwise fusion of Jazz, World Music and Spoken Word CD was no easy task.

About Tony Vacca: Tony Vacca is an innovative American percussionist with Jazz and World Music roots going back to 1972. Over the course of his career, he has made a habit of pushing the already adventurous conventions of World Music into new territory, both as a soloist and as the leader of his World Rhythms Ensemble. He is part of a wave of 20th century musicians whose work has fueled the rediscovery of the power of the drum, and the power of music to build global common ground. His fourteen trips to West Africa have contributed to his unique approach to playing the balafon, and to his depth of knowledge regarding African and American musical traditions.

After feeling Tony Vacca’s stirring testimonials through drum and word, SoulMedic eased us into the sensually exquisite, jazzy jam of spoken word that is Akua Naru’s “How does it Fee?”

About Akua Naru: Having begun writing and performing rhymes as a young girl, the New Haven, CT (USA) born Akua Naru, began crafting in her early years what would later reveal to be a great talent for profound lyricism and extraordinary musical performances. Known as a traveler, as chronicled throughout her Jan. 2011 debut release, The Journey Aflame, this female wordsmith has garnered attention by trotting the globe, recording her experiences and fusing musical genres with her brand of hip hop. Formerly based in Philadelphia, there have been many stops along the way, from traveling West Africa to touring China, Naru moved to Cologne, Germany where she currently resides and creates music.

Keeping on the path of love JAS took us deeper into soul mate reflection with Amado Nervo’s Mi Secreto (My Secret). This Spanish Poem ponders

? Understand-t? you want the visible

transport, real, the tangible

caresses of the female, that is reflected

all your wishes invincible-

the impossible of the impossible

to worship a ghost?

About Amado Nervo: Amado Nervo (August 27, 1870 – May 24, 1919) also known as Juan Crisóstomo Ruiz de Nervo was the Mexican Ambassador to Argentina and Uruguay,[1] journalist, poet, and educator. His poetry was known for its use of metaphor and reference to mysticism, presenting love and religion, as well as Christianity and Hinduism. Nervo is noted as one of the most important Mexican poets of the 19th century. Nervo is generally considered the most distinguished Mexican poet of the late 19th- and early 20th-century literary movement known as Modernismo. Nervo’s introspective poetry, characterized by deep religious feeling and simple forms, reflects his struggle for self-understanding and inner peace in an uncertain world.

Our global journey alights in Brooklyn with our next piece by Tantra Zawadi. This world renowned mentor for the Girl Child Network, HIV/AIDS advocate and mutli-dimensional artist brought her book “Bubbles: One Conscious Breath” to us with “Jazzy Nights (For Jayne Cortez)   Betasweet Tribute To Velile Mix”.

About Tantra Zawadi: Brooklyn born poet/author Tantra-zawadi best describes her work “by the love that I make through my art to the vision of the unseen reality.” Soulful and sublime, her poetry explores love in all its forms; from the rush of the first kiss to the bittersweet. As a performance poet and published author, Tantra uses her voice to support the rights of women through creative expression. She has performed to standing-room audiences at venues as far away as South Africa, London, Germany and Canada. Tantra is also a recipient of the Kings County District Attorney’s Office Award for Women’s History Month and a 2010 Pushcart Prize nominee for her poem “Girl.” Partial proceeds from Tantra’s latest book “Gathered at Her Sky” (Poets Wear Prada), are being donated to the Girl-Child Network Worldwide.

Continuing the globetrotting brought us to alight on Japanese Haiku westernized by Brooklyn’s own Carlos Mena (Casamena). Tackling relevant real life topics with “Nine Haikus” this DJ/Producer/Hip Hop/Spoken Word artist gave us food for thought in short order through his 2004 album “Hip Hop Meditations”.

About Carlos Mena: Carlos Mena is a music producer and DJ that has produced music for platinum selling artist Arrested Development, Tre Hardson (The Pharcyde), Osunlade’s Yoruba Records, Vega Records, Got Soul Records, Deeper Soul Records, and Phuture Soul, as well as many local bay area artists, including Zion I. He also lead the popular Bay Area group 10BASS T, to many accolades and opening stints for Counting Crows, The Roots, and Lollapalooza.  His Solo debut “Hip-Hop Meditations” fuses Afro-Cuban music with hip-hop and has received wonderful reviews from major hip-hop publications across the country. Carlos recently received an artistic fellowship grant from the City of Oakland for his work on Hip-Hop Meditations. He was also included in URB MAGAZINE’s NEXT 100 (up and coming artists) for 2006.

Sole Plates Radio meets Cyberjamz Radio this Tuesday April 22,2014 – 1 – 3pm est

Share Button

Check in this Terrific Tuesday as Sole Plate Radio’s  own Ian Fletcher will bless us with a hot mix direct from the U.K (Manchester).

Showtime: 1 pm – 3pm est (USA) time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bio

 

With his musical roots dating back to the early 90′s underground rave scene, Ian ‘Sole Plates’ Fletcher soon discovered New York’s underground house sound courtesy of Graeme Park & Tom Wainright’s legendary Saturday night sessions at Manchester’s Hacienda nightclub… and that was it! Having built up a sizeable collection of vinyl during the halcyon days of the mid 90′s whilst touring Manchester’s student circuit, featuring favourite artists & labels such as Tommy Musto, Mood II Swing, DJ Pierre, Suburban, Nitegrooves & Strictly Rhythm, an unenforced 12 year sabbatical ensued.

 

Inspired by a number of trips to New York City’s Wednesday night ‘Roots’ & Thursday night ‘Libation’ sessions, his musical passion was reinvigorated in 2010 with the birth of the Sole Plates radio show on Manchester’s 96.9 ALL FM.
