Poet X Special: Tales Of The Untold 2.0 (TOTU2)

In collaboration with our partners Monsters Among Us and Asterik Anak Seni, Poet X is proud to present an off-season special of recordings taken during our event in August 2017.

TOTU2 was part of a larger campaign to raise awareness on the issue of child sexual abuse and sexual grooming, or abbreviated as CSAG.
It was held at Twenty20Two, PJ and showcased many different performances including music, poetry, storytelling and theatre. Our celebrity guest Daphne Iking also took to the stage and read true victim stories which touched the hearts of many in the crowd. The venue was packed on the night with over 170 tickets sold.

It is our combined hope that the message is received by society loud and clear that there is no place for CSAG in our country and our future.

Featured exclusively in this episode are poems recorded live during 'Tales of the Untold' 2.0:

1) 'Achar Budak Kampung' by Pavithrah Sambu
2) 'Motorcycle Diaries' by Jamal Raslan
3) 'Hati Besar Jari' by Wani Ardy

Ruminate - Jamal Raslan

Ruminate was a spoken word event organised by Poet X in February 2017 where we showcased among the biggest talents of the contemporary poetry scene.

In this penultimate episode of the Ruminate series, we present you a poet who has an almost cult-like following in the scene. Through the years, Jamal has helped shape and mould local poetry through his influence on poets and organisers alike.

Skilled trilingually, Jamal Raslan is a contemporary example of the conundrum that is the English-speaking Malay Muslim. An icon to many junior poets, he is a seasoned performer adept at captivating the audience with almost discomforting ease.

Jamal has appeared on TEDxKL and is an artist with MOCA fest under the World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF). He released his Ep "The Word" in 2011 at the Georgetown Literary Festival and was published in Malchin Testament: Malaysian Poems.
