Ruminate – Yohanna Yusrinal
Ruminate was a spoken word event organised by Poet X in February 2017 where we showcased among the biggest talents of the contemporary poetry scene.
In the third episode of the Ruminate series, we present you a true force of nature who lives in words and breathes words into life. A captivating performer, she oozes confidence on stage. Her level of performance poetry was on full display at Ruminate as she left jaws hanging in her wake.
