MP3 Brother Dash - Spoken Soul

Energetic, rhythmic cadence to his spoken word poetry with elements of jazz cadence, hip-hop lyricism and dramatic theater for a unique presentation that is atypical slam poetry flow and more typical of simply HOT Spoken Word.

Brother Dash is one of only a handful of modern Spoken Word Poets where being "poetic" is actually central to his artistry. While his cadence is reminiscent of scat jazz and hip-hop with an energetic and truthful emotional energy the actual art of spoken word is not lost in style. Brother Dash doesn''t fall into the typical "slam" poetry traps of manufactured anger, volume for volume sake, or recycled themes of social angst. The emotion on Spoken Soul is visceral and full of genuine integrity. A seasoned writer and adept orator Brother Dash does draws the listener into the poem with relevant content and a sincere belief in what he saying that resonates with those that hear it.

Spoken Soul is a very personal journey for Brother Dash. His most introspective album to date the poems focus on loss, redemption, self introspection, spiritual reliance, joy of self discovery and hope for the future and on some social themes as well. The poem "Most Beautifullest" focuses on the most beautiful of creation which is the Woman. The poem concentrates on mothers in particular. His poem "Scream" is about people not being afraid to say what they are feeling inside. It was especially written for the youth to speak out and to let their voices be heard. His poem "Masjid Marauders" deals with cultural predatory behavior under the guise of Islam. It is a piece that anyone dealing with issues of culture, race, and hegemony can relate to. But most of the poems on the album deal with the "self" and as such Spoken Soul is one of the few albums of any genre that listeners can insert themselves into as the protagonist or antagonist.

All songs on the album are acapella with the exception of the title track which incorporates a smooth jazz/ambient fusion background underneath Dash''s spoken word vocals. This is the first track Dash has used music with and is one of the only tracks you will ever hear that fuses Spoken Word and music in a symbiotic way. Most Spoken Word Poetry with music tends to sound more like the musical genre and the poetry suffers. On the title track "Spoken Soul" Dash does an adept job at fusing the two genres to create a unique and impactful final poetic song.

Spoken Soul is Brother Dash''s 2nd full length album. His first album "Poetically Speaking" is available online at several retailers. Just google it (after you purchase Spoken Soul of course).
