Sinangan-ta (Our Spoken Words)

Last night’s poetry slam at The Buzz Cafe was moving and inspiring. It was great to see so many poets take the stage and I especially liked that the event transcended age and ethnic background. Good vibes all around. I was honored to be among five judges of the poetry slam segment. The MC battle after the slam was awesome!
Here’s a clip of Jay Pascua performing the english part (he started out in chamorro) of his performance, “Cultivate Your Roots.” Powerful words.
Kudos to Jovan (below, left) and his partners for organizing an outstanding event. I am very much looking forward to the next one, whenever that will be!

    Hi, Haji here,
    I’m enthused to hear this…but could you show the link to the video file so that I could download the link to my harddrive/ipod….
    I tried a few ways, but the link isn’t as friendly as I’d like for my o/s environment…(it is listed as an html file/page, not as an avi. or mpg. (…etc.) file)
    What I get is a garbled/jerky-impossible to hear file. Yeah, I’m T1 broadband, but it’s not getting through well here in Korea…
    PS: did you ever get an audio file of your radio show? (I couldn’t hear it live—was working)
