Ruminate - Jamal Raslan

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.
