Ariadne’s Notes: On March 31st, 2016 the World Poetry Café with host and producer Ariadne Sawyer , co-host Neall Ryon and sound engineer Victor Schwartzman welcome an amazing rising star from LA, 18 year old Jade White in her first radio interview, brought to us by Osiris Munir and Ankh Entertainment firstname.lastname@example.org
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, 18-year-old indie-pop artist, Jade White has grown up with a deep love for music. Always “singing and writing in her head, “White turned to music to overcome significant life challenges, to speak her mind and to articulate her unique energy through her voice.
With a passion for musical theater, White has been acting and singing since she was a child, starring in stage productions in and around Southern California. Yearning to move beyond the stage, White teamed with producers, Tom & Jenn Korbee to craft her debut single, “Someone to Call My Own.”
“Someone to Call My Own” which debuts on August 4th is a reflection of experiences that reveal, in brutal honesty, a desire to connect with others in a much deeper manner. White’s vocals generate an authentic calmness combined with melodic irresistibility, a cross between the vocal styling’s of Hayley Williams and Norah Jones.
Jade will be performing throughout Southern California over the coming months as she prepares to release her new EP, also titled, “Someone to Call My Own.”
“Ariadne’s Notes: We are honoured to present a talented young poet from Pakistan who joins our World Poetry Family.
I’m Yasir Kayani, an Attorney at law, Writer, Poet and Human Rights activist. I belong to Pakistan’s district which is far flung from the capital of my country. My city, Kasurissituated on the periphery of Pakistan’s eastern border with India. But how far I am, we all belong to one family and that is human family. Poetry given a flip to imaginations. I do poetry in English as well as in my National language i.e. Urdu. As no body has ever measure, not even poets how much the heart can hold. Poetry is the medium that tries to measure the heights of imagination and depth of one’s feelings. Rainer Maria Rilke once said, “The only journey is the one within.” And through poetry, I travel from within, I am in search of the universe within, the secrets and mysteries within myself, the woof and warp of Nature within and the dazzling light that guides me always. Being a Human Rights activist, I wish to depart this world feeling content that I fulfilled my duty to my fellow human beings. I wish you all an illuminating journey towards yourself! ”
