Root Cause, organisers of the Seh Sup'm Poetry and Live Music series, has teamed up with Manifesto Jamaica - an NGO devoted to youth empowerment and nation building through art and culture - to introduce a thrilling new concept to the Seh Sup'm audience on August 29.

Seh Sup'm: Omega Vibration will fuse photography, poetry and live music into a dynamic display of seven of Jamaica's most prolific young female artists. The event, conceptualised by Janine 'Jah9' Cunningham, will feature an audio-visual exploration of five distinct themes.

Photography by Joanna Francis, Renae Simpson, Sabriya Simon and Tiffany Lue-Yen will provide the imagery, while Kai Falconer, Raquel Jones, Sabriya Simon and Yashika Graham will narrate the thematic journey, and Jah9's vocals will reverberate the messages in each segment.

"Women are the driving force behind change, yet they continue to be relegated to a position of silent servitude," commented Jah9. "The Omega Vibration concept was born out of a vision I have to see women unite and create together; to express their raw emotions with the utmost skill."

Seh Sup'm: Omega Vibration will happen at the Village Blues Bar, 20 Barbican Road, on Sunday, August 29. Gates open at 6 p.m. Showtime is 7 p.m.. Music will be provided by DJ Afifa. Presold tickets are available at Bookophilia, 92 Hope Road.

All proceeds are in aid of Manifesto Jamaica's ART'ical Empowerment initiatives.
