Spoken Word artist Poetra Asantewa has released her debut EP, The Naked Ones. Although she has been in the art circles for some time, this is her first official release.
“A lie is a dressed truth and Poetra is one of the very few who knows that what we currently call “naked truth” has actually been fully clothed for some time now, but we ignore it to prevent immediate discomfort. She is literally the literary Yaa Asantewaa of our time fighting with words and sound to liberate us” – Wanlov had this to say about the EP.
The EP was recorded and produced by well-rounded musician/producer – Kyekyeku. The Naked Ones is a spoken word project that fuses contemporary poetry with neo-soul and jazz.
In line with the EP release, she will host a live Spoken Word show will on the 16th of October at Rina’s Restaurant inside Oxford Mall at 6:30pm, where copies of the EP will be available for sale.
She also intends to have other shows in the month of November to interact with fans and music and poetry lovers.
