FUNKdalena

FUNKdalena Final Cover 

FUNKdalena - Unable to stop the natural course of her poetry, Deborah bares a new, healed and FUNKY soul in FUNKdalena, produced by renowned DJ and producer Javier “The Brass King” Rivera. In this latest collaboration, Deborah suggests that the cure for the plague of hatred, conflict, and inner-turmoil must be self-love-- FUNKing love:

“This is the first time I’ve written pretty poetry, funky poetry-- the kind of poetry that makes you want to dance and make the ugly FUNK face”, proclaims Deborah.

Heartbreak

Heartbreak Haiku COVER Heartbreak Haiku is Deborah’s first chapbook and received rave reviews and accolades in the fall of 2010. This expression of poetic love by soulful spoken word poet Deborah Magdalena is a heartfelt and honest account of her battle with the process of relationships and heart break. The words don’t just jump off the page-- they singe your skin right down to the core, right down to your soul. "I needed to write heartbreak haikus so that I could live through the love, the shock, the rage, the mourning, and the forgiveness that comes with a heart break to be able to truly find the ultimate love--self-love, and to understand my self-worth,” states Deborah.

 “In Heartbreak Haiku, Deborah transforms into a 21st century, Samurai, Adobo-Eating, Guerrera Princess who channels her poetic-god in an attempt to conquer the trials and tribulations of her past, present, and future relationships.” Nuyorican poet Shaggy Flores


 

LIVE

Deborah Magdalena LIVE - COVER

DEBORAH MAGDALENA LIVE was recorded LIVE at South Beach’s Marlin Hotel in 2004 during a standing room only blowout performance, produced by internationally renowned DJ and radio personality DJ Sama. This special show was the very first time Deborah shared the stage with her Latin Grammy winning brother Nestor Torres, her father Don Nestor, Apollo Champ, and Neo-Soul singer Big Brooklyn Red. This organic LIVE recording captured Deborah’s very essence.

 

“The poems, fresh and at times funny relates the poet’s revelations to love,

sex, friends, family and her own search for identity, declaring her independence

with a gggrrrllish bite.”Judy Cantor – The Street Weekly, Miami Herald

Spoken Soul

Spoken Soul; A Survival Kit of Poetry - COVER

 

SPOKEN SOUL; A Survival Kit Of Poetry was Deborah’s first poetic project. She worked with famed producers including Latin Grammy nominee Andres Dalmastro,  Brandon K. Olmos (son of Hollywood legend Edward James Olmos), renowned bassist Peter Tolluck, and publisher / producer Will Edwards to create a fusion of smooth jazz and soul-based melodies as the soundtrack to Deborah’s reflections about  her discovery of all forms of love since September 11th and her reconciliation with her Nuyorican soul.
