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 - Sheena Baharudin

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.

Marking the end of the 'Ruminate: Live Recordings' series, we feature a true shining beacon in the scene. Her mastery in performance poetry has earned her many titles - a light bringer, a love giver and a true inspiration to many young writers.

Sheena Baharudin represents the poetry collective Poetry Cafe KL and has assumed the role of student, teacher, writer and performer in her decade long involvement in poetry.
Her first book of poetry, 'Rhymes for Mending Hearts' was published in 2013 and her latest book, 'All The Bodies We've Embraced' was recently released on May 1st.

Her poems are featured in several poetry anthologies including Rollercoasters and Bedsheets, Poems And Other Myths: A collection of Spoken Word Poetry by Women in South East Asia and Malchin Testament: Malaysian Poems. Several have also been translated into French and Spanish by the literary journals Jentayu and 2384. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Malaysian Literature, focusing on the relationship between spoken word poetry and storytelling.

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.

Ruminate – Azam Rais

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 fifth episode of the Ruminate series, we present to you our very own Azam Rais.

Azam Rais writes and performs exclusively in rhythm and rhyme. His poetry aims at invoking deep sentiments in the listener buried under social norms and preconceptions.
He began writing at a tender age but only started performing on small stages and gigs in 2014. He has since established himself on stages of Poetry Cafe KL's slams, Numinous, Festival Belia at Putrajaya, Markas Kota Damansara and Speakcity's Poetically correct.

In late 2016, Azam Rais and his team founded Malaysia's first ever poetry podcast called Poet X aimed at scouting and promoting local talents. Since then, he has been known as a collector and curator of Malaysian poetry.
Azam Rais believes that poetry is alive and in need of nourishment.

Ruminate - Tulangkata

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.

The second poet we feature in this Ruminate series is Tulangkata. An artistic soul through and through, Tulangkata wanders this world and sees it in words unexpressed. He is a poet who does not believe in absolutism, black-and-white or right-and-wrong.

Tulangkata represents one-third of the explosive creative trio known as Mimpi Rusak. He has been actively basking in the light of stages around KL, Selangor, Johor, Melaka & Negeri Sembilan. His first poetry book “99 Puisi” was published in 2014 when he was only 19 years old and became his introduction to the poetry world. After his second book “41 Lelaki 40 Perempuan” was published a year later, Tulangkata has been on a break to kindle new flame in his life.
