The power of the Kalimah

The past few years have seen a resurgence in the art of the spoken word not only in the Muslim community but around the world.  Our community found in it their voice and connected to the rhythm and the no nonsense approach.  Performers from other fields, singers, comics, and even poets from other languages (Arabic, Urdu, etc) adopted the medium and popularized.  It looks easy; a few words the rhyme and a few lines that pack a punch, but it aint. Learn the methodology behind spoken word and slam poetry from a world renowned expert and award winning writer/performer, Boonaa Mohammed. This 90 minute workshop is for those who want to get a taste of how the pros do it; writing, editing, and performance.
