Jamaica based gospel performer, Marsha Wade, is on a campaign to educate Jamaicans at home and abroad about her preferred form of expression: soetry. This is a unique blend of music and poetry that’s carefully fused together to create what many consider to be a brand new musical genre.
Wade began composing the artform in 2015; and as she has always done, she prayed for guidance and direction while wrestling with what to call her rhythmical utterances. After seeking the Holy Spirit, soetry was revealed.
To that end, Marsha Wade now considers herself a soet; that is someone who writes soems. She will be releasing one such soem in October. Stay tuned.
