    @Pkolo The Producer speaks 2 @VickensMoscova on working @ #Badboy & new projects

    in Music

    Widens Dorsainville, also known as Pkolo “The Producer”, has been creating music since he was a child. “Creating has always been a part of me” says Pkolo, “I remember sitting at my table watching my Aunt Saundra blogging about music while she was studying to become a doctor”. Through experiences like this, he realized that music was a universal language that affected all people, whether they were in the industry, studying in school, or living on the street. Recognizing music’s broad appeal, Pkolo was inspired to channel his creativity through the medium of music, and he was determined to create that which would strongly affect those around him. In the year 1999, Pkolo relocated to New Jersey after separating from his family, who resided in Haiti. He found himself surrounded with various cultures and new experiences that he had never been exposed to. Curious and enthusiastic, he delved into these new experiences with an open mind. It was during this time that he discovered his true love; Hip Hop music. “I had always listened to hip hop but never really paid much attention to it. Then one day Hot 97 had put on this one song, (Quiet Storm by Mobb Deep), and I was immediately hooked” recalls Pkolo. Hip hop had found Pkolo. Pkolo had found his lifes work

    B.Flys Poetry Lounge: The Man, The Myth, The Legend Who is Urbn Vudu??

    in Poetry

    Urbn Vudu...The name in itself sparks so many ideas in the minds of folks... Throuh his poetry he sets the record straight. UrbanVoodoo is the combination of two distinct ideas, Urban in terms of the inner city which bred my style and Magic which the sound is designed to create City Magic. He is affectionately called Urb by his friends, he is original from New Orleans, Louisiana home of the Spicy Creole Culture that has permeated the urban sound for decades. 

    Urbn is merely a branch off that same tree. He writes concrete. There is no imaginary man holding the microphone here. He was raised in two distinct localities where the cultural norms are as different as Denmark and Hamburg are to each other, even though the two countries are both European. I was raised in California and Louisiana. He grew up in a very stable tribal environment in his 9th ward locality of NO and eventually he was raised by the hardened streets of INGLEWOOD, CA. where childhood is often eclipsed by reality and dreams are like the yearning for true freedom. Urban Voodoo is a product of those dreams. UrbanVoodoo was recently nominated for best spoken word album of the year in the Spoken Word Billboard Awards held in Michigan a couple months ago and he was also featured in Spoken Vizions Magazine 2012 Fall Edition (http://www.spokenvizions.com/).

    ANYTHING GOES Scott Silverii/ Liliana Hart

    in Pop Culture

    Bennet Pomerantz hosts the Betty award winning ANYTHING GOES..where he talks with guests from all forms of media. Tonight his giests are Lilana Hart and Scott Silverii.


    Scott has served as a Chief of Police since January 2011. Silverii previously spent twenty-one years with a nationally accredited Sheriff’s Office.


    Scott blends over 24 years of heart-stopping police experiences with an action packed writing style seasoned by the Mardi Gras, hurricanes, humidity and crawfish étouffée. Don’t let the easy Creole smile fool you.


     


    **


    Liliana is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of more than 40 titles.


    After starting her first novel her freshman year of college, she immediately became addicted to writing and knew she’d found what she was meant to do with her life.


     


    Liliana can almost always be found at her computer writing or on the road giving workshops for SilverHart International, a company she founded with her husband, Scott Silverii, where they provide law enforcement, military, and fire resources for writers so they can write it right.


    Liliana is a recent transplant to Southern Louisiana, where she’s getting used to the humidity and hurricane season, and plotting her next murder (for her books, of course)
