Sometimes an artist appears that defies all categories or genres. He cannot be slotted.  Such an artist is Hajile Kalaike. Originally form Maryland, USA, but solidly based in Toronto for many years, Hajile uses spoken word to express his unique take on life. Like the Beat poets  of the 50's and 60's, who used poetry to express their insights on society and human behavior,  Hajile mines the area between the topical and the ideal, the spiritual and the physical. A deeply thoughtful person, Hajile's rhymes and prose poems will astonish you with their insight into the human condition. Frank and honest, he does not shy away from the injustice and unhappiness of modern life. But he does so always with a lyrical sophistication and elegance that elevates you, the listener.  Married to infectious grooves and fascinating musical elements, his words sneak up on you. They will make you reflect, possibly even reexamine your viewpoints.  

Above all else, Hajile is unabashedly idealistic. There is hope in Hajile's world for mankind. And that is a message that sorely needs to be heard.
