IMOLE, Jumi's Spoken Cabaret is an innovative compilation of ten (10) inspirational tracks of ironic weaves of recitals, songs, poetry, word games, wit, metaphors and subtleties set to varying genres of music.
Jumi sees poetry as a fascinating tool that gives expression to a passionate and unorthodox voice. She clearly feels very much a part of her audience and believes that in listening incisively they will find twists, turns and whimsies of our collective destiny food for inspired thought...
A âproudly Nigerianâ poet, vocalist and lyricist with a tender tough stripe of cultural louche and spiritual commentary, Jumi's artistic style is bold and imaginative with a conversational voice that sounds almost reticent.
In Jumi's Spoken Cabaret, she maximizes this compelling and inimitable style to ride hot currents for the pain and pleasure of swooping around spiritual, pure, social, maternal and fragile subjects. Whilst doing this, she clings to images of reality that are firmly embedded in what she perceives to be the publicâs consciousness, acknowledging issues people feel they are familiar with or can relate to, offering a speculative but entirely plausible view.
Exposure to Yoruba griot sounds, classical forms of music plus a need for and hunger to express truthâs tale becomes tension released in distinct ways in each of the ten tracks on the CD. From deep sentiments to an indigenous groove set to a lush vocal background to epics of gratitude carrying a sensual earthiness, the entire production is a consolidation of international and traditional styles fused into a deeply personal approach.
"Jumiâs voice is very rich and she enunciates her words with a passion that grabs you. Also very interesting is her use of metaphors in a very distinct way. âLike a rose bud romancing a hot summer sun, a seedling takes root to be conformed to the sunâ. She does not try to come across like a follower of Chaucer and hence her work is delightfully very original â and sometimes very abstract in her choice of expression as seen in âImoleâ. At some point, though, are certain expressions that that may throw off individuals who are new to poetry or not very cross-culturally aware. However, though one may be lost as to the meaning of certain rushed lines, there is always some clarification given as the poetry unfurls.
The music is also in very good taste. Though good enough to be a distraction at certain points and might have been perfect if a tad lower in volume, it beautifully helps to paint pictures that skillfully capture the spoken words of this prolific poet. The album also captures a very strong African essence that is very refreshing, while having a diverse blend of music and poetry that does not allow the listener room for boredom. Overall, the album is a must-have for both budding and mature appreciators of the arts, and is a good addition to any music collection."
