Below is the poetry performance I spoke of on Sunday. I read 4 poems that night but below in the video I read only two poems, ‘Wounded’ and ‘Unapologetically black’. At a later time, I will blog about my experience of the night and it is most likely my last performance in the Netherlands. Continue reading
How are you all? I usually do not post on Saturdays but here I am! Though it may be a bit short notice I wanted to let you, my lovely followers, know that on Sunday (which is tomorrow) I will be doing a short spoken word at Rooms Hostel along with other singers from a singing school called Vocalsz.

How are you all doing this nice Monday afternoon? I spent my Mondays like I always have done for the past several weeks: I sleep in until some time around noon and then get up to go to my massage job until 12 o’ clock midnight.
Anyway, I just wanted to briefly let you, my dear readers, know that I will be performing some spoken word at a Gist Podium event on Wednesday the 15th of November starting from 20.30 – 22.30 pm. So those who can come, please come out and show your support. I would highly appreciate it! I also plan to go live on my Facebook page, so if you cannot make it for whatever reason you can always watch it wherever you may be at the time. ‘I gotchu’. 😀
Also, a piece was written about me as can be seen below and it goes something like this, for those who do not quite understand the Dutch language:
“Angie Ignacio orinigally comes from the very small Caribbean island, Saba. She is crazy about dancing, singing, manga (comics) and listens to Asian music because she is a real Japanese fanatic and tries to learn the Japanese language. She has also already written a poetry book collection and a children’s picture book. But for Gist #34 she comes as Angie’s Inspiration for her English spoken word and poetry”
Hey, you lovely folks. These past few days I have been feeling a little irritable but every day cannot be sunshine and roses, right?
Anyway, on Sunday I was told by my singing coach to write a spoken word poem because he though it would help me with practicing how to sing properly. However, the problem (well, not really a probem) is I have never written a spoken word poem before. I have no experience in this area but I still took the challenge for myself. I have read a couple of my poems when I record myself on camera, but that is nothing compared to spoken word, so this was sort of a new area for me.
I never said I could not write it but I just never tried. It never crossed my mind before to try even though I have posted many spoken word poems on my blog before. Within less than a day my poem somewhat completed. This morning I sent my spoken word poem voice recording to some friends asking for their feedback. Although, I have never had explicit content in any of my writings, this piece called for it and it might be a smidge explicit for some. So be Warned.
I do intend to share this spoken word one of these days but not at this moment. Once I have perfected it I might share it later.
Well, that is all for today, folks. Have a great day and see you all next time.
