On The Table Read Magazine, “the best book magazine in the UK“, immersing readers in Haikus, Tankas, Shakespearean sonnets and more, Illuminate By Kayero Sanda explores the preconceptions and challenges that make up contemporary life.
In a world that is currently filled with challenges and conflicts, Kayero Sanda (aka Carrio Xanders) delights with his latest anthology, Illuminate.
Grappling with uncomfortable truths and realities, poet Kayero “Carrio Xanders” Sanda explores light as a concept from three spectacular perspectives: light in its literal sense, light as life and finally light in the form of enlightenment. Challenging the reader on some of their own preconceived notions on themes ranging from tyranny and oppressive governance to spirituality, and even electricity/power cuts, while exploring these truths and shuttling between contemporary and traditional styles.
In Illunimate, Sanda’s passion and deep connection to the human experience is explored through the intricate interplay of ideologies that define our existence, offering a unique and unfiltered perspective on the world. He invites readers to explore the depths of their own emotions while revelling in the beauty of language and the transformative power of art.
Drawing inspiration from his spoken word EP, which shares the same evocative title, Kayero has masterfully crafted a poetic landscape that resonates with raw emotion, vivid imagery, and unapologetic storytelling. His words carry a melody that speaks to the heart, mind, and soul, leaving an indelible mark on those who immerse themselves in the pages of his work.
With his authenticity shining throughout, Sanda uses the full range of poetical forms further to add to the potency of the words in Illuminate, as do the ‘nods’ he gives to his West African roots.
Bronx native and legendary Hip hop icon and academic, Mickey Factz, wrote the foreword for this whihc was a true labour of love for musician/artist/poet/entrepreneur Kayero Sanda. Illuminate is guaranteed to provoke emotions and provide a much needed tonic for today’s conflicted souls.
Multifaceted artist and poet Kayero “Carrio Xanders” Sanda has captivated audiences with his powerful blend of poetry and music over the years. With an extensive catalogue of material, he has finally unveiled his creative genius to the world through his debut collection of poems, titled “Illuminate.”
In a world where authenticity is rare, Kayero is an artist who dares to be real. His works are the raw, unfiltered essence of a life lived deeply, felt intensely, and expressed fearlessly. He is not a mere creator; he is indeed a sculptor of worlds, a stirrer of souls, and a provocateur of emotions. “Illuminate” serves as the first note of a symphony that will resonate with hearts and minds, inviting you to embark on a creative adventure led by a distinctive voice.
