Bio

the unlimited possibilities of the word
nth digri

The nth digri, is inspired by his Caribbean and Canadian heritage, hip-hop culture, and the African griot tradition. He produced WordLife, a poetry and music compilation that marked the emerging African Canadian spoken word movement at the turn of the 21st century. His record, Tales of the North Coast, was nominated for a Canadian Urban Music Award and a Harry Jerome Award. He produced the Ottawa urban poetry series, Golden Star Lounge, and led a contingent to Chicago for the National Poetry Slam, where his poem Sugar Cane was selected for the Best of the 2004 NPS anthology. He co-founded the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, the first national slam poetry tournament in Canada, and was recognized the Festival’s Male Poet of Honour in 2010. He has performed in Canada, the Caribbean, and the United States, most recently at the 2013 Cascadoo Festival in Trinidad and Tobago.

His new record, south is north, is now available at http://nthdigri.bandcamp.com/album/south-is-north

RevWord

RevWord is spoken word poetry
With an urban asymmetry
Production and vocals
Cross waters international and local
Publication of the timeless
Momentary and momentous
Verses beyond limits
With the freedom dynamics

Poetry for change
The revolutionary word
