spoken word

Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye are both half-Jewish and half-Japanese and are spoken word poets. Sarah has a younger brother named Philip, Phil has a younger sister named Sarah. They aren’t related. Confused much? Watch this.

Isn’t it wonderful when the universe aligns itself so beautifully?

Sarah and Phil started Project V.O.I.C.E (Vocal Outreach Into Creative Expression) to encourage the younger generation to find their creative voice and use spoken word to share their ideas with the world.

Phil Kaye tells us what he thinks spoken word is all about.

Sarah was recently on TED. (We love TED, remember J.R.?) Her poem “B” is nothing short of amazing. Watch till the end and she performs another one called “Hiroshima”.

Go explore the world of spoken word. You’ll be pleased.

    I was lucky enough to see Sarah Kay perform at an event called Spark where the keynote speaker was the other main guy of facebook. His talk was so forgettable I forget his name. Her talk was the best by far. Absolutely brilliant. Instant crush.
