OMG, spoken word is popping up everywhere! The Master Griot Project™ contends this is just the tip of the iceberg. Join in the manifestation of a new sphere for the spoken word industry. We have not yet seen all that the word can do. Spoken word is moving beyond just public service announcements, slams, and open mics. It's adequately being used in commercials, creative edutainment campaigns and leveraging the internet of everything to produce new works and galvanize fanbases.
Engage, envision with Beyond the Word every 3rd Monday here on Master Griot / NBBTA Radio.
