“Tantra-zawadi is magical just like the African mermaid. Her flow is like water and her words become the boat that you sail in. In this world of form and no substance, her words have meaning and a sensuality that we don’t find often. Hearing and reading her poetry is like taking a journey to the places we dream of.”
—-Abiodun Oyewole,
Founding member of The Last Poets

“Tantra-zawadi’s new collection is a must to read and it bubbles through every corner of the world. The symbolic bubble flying in the air will leave many with multiple meanings of the beauty of life. Tantra-zawadi has finally brought the world to peace and hope. If ever one is to have their next dosage of inspiration, then this one is a must. I am permanently inspired by Tantra-zawadi. She is not only a poet to me but she is my hero. Let history not leave out those who remained on the ground inspiring communities and breaking taboos whilst at the same time uniting the global village. I fully endorse this book and I ask every human being in the world to bubble their lives in this amazing great piece of art.”
–Betty Makoni, CNN Hero, poet, author and founder of the Girl-Child Network Worldwide

“Some would call her creations poetry and would call her latest collection a ‘book of poems.’ But it’s really a dare…a double-dare to share a journey to the core of our individual and collective experience of love; love for our selves and for our precious ever-evolving humanity. From country music to pulp fiction, from pop songs to epic poetry, seems like we are all too ready for hearts in love to be broken, for dreams and visions to go unrealized. Tantra-zawadi’s words, written and spoken, offer a different paradigm; a trail of hearts daring to be open.”
—-Tony Vacca,
World Music/Percussionist, founding member of The Senegal-America Project

“Tantra-zawadi remains one of the modern lyrical masters and keepers of a timeless poetic tradition. Whether live, recorded or in print, her curation of words have definitely earned her a place in the contemporary canon.”
—-Mwalim DaPhunkeeProfessor (MJ Peters),
