  • New album, 'Babelism' out now from Saskatoon Artist Parab Poet

    New album, 'Babelism' out now from Saskatoon Artist Parab Poet

    October 27, 2021

    October 29th 2021 marks the release of Parab Poet’s new album ‘Babelism’ - This project hits different for Parab, as he embarks on his most personal body of work to date. Not only is this album entirely produced by Parab himself, but the subject matter touches deeper than ever. Addressing subjects that are extremely sensitive for him, he wrote this album wiping tears off the pages. Growing up in an immigrant family, Parab experienced a lot of hardship in his home. From a family that escaped civil war, the battles continued throughout his entire life. It wasn’t until later in his 30’s that Parab began to face the music and deal with his childhood trauma. Babelism tells the story of a boy who begins to unravel the confusion that had him in a cycle of suffering and break free from the loop hole. “Hip Hop saved me” a sometimes over said cliche, lands differently for him. Music not only helped him escape his struggles, but also to learn how to communicate in ways he could never articulate otherwise. Parab, often known for rapping on matters of positivity, took paths on this record uncharted. This time, not only did he entertain the angel on his one shoulder but went face to face with the demon on the other.  These nine songs paint the fabric of Parab’s paradigm. 

    Babelism is available on all streaming platforms 10.29.2021 and for purchase on his bandcamp page, links below.

    New Video and Single 'Samsara' by Parab Poet

    February 29, 2020

    Newest Single & Video by Parab Poet titled 'Samsara' makes its debut to the world on Leap Year Day, Saturday February 29, 2020. This song is rare and unique like a Leap Day, so it was only fitting to have the two align. Samsara was performed and captured in its entirety as a 'freestyle.' Parab later went on to record it and shoot the music video. With videography from Saskatoon's own Dilly Bat Productions and Vancouver based Achee TV, they helped Parab capture and reenact the day Samsara was birthed. With production from Kwest (Poetic Pilgrims) Parab happened upon this beat on an old beat machine. It was discovered only a few hours before the upsetting experience which led to the freestyle ventilation and creation of this gem. A Must See Video and Song that may only occur every four years or so... we recommend you enter into Samsara by Parab Poet.

Discography

  • Matters Most

    Various Artists

    August 2010

    Parab's first solo album titled "Matters Most' initiates his journey as a solo artist. Part of the group Poetic Pilgrims, Parab ventured into his first solo work with this debut. Producing half of the record, he leaned on Kwest (Poetic Pilgrims) and Big Jess (Unknown Prophets) for the rest. The album takes you into his journey through rhymes of contemplation to what really matters most. First to him, and then the listener, he travels through his mind and heart cleaning up shop and decluttering to see what may remain.

  • Samsara

    Samsara is the latest Single from Parab Poet. This song was birthed as a freestyle that later came to be one of Parab's favs to date. With production from Kwest (Poetic Pilgrims) Parab happened upon the beat on an 18 year old zip disc. Falling into a freestyle, Parab captured the lyrics on his voice memo. After recording it professionally, Parab partnered with videographers Dilly Bat Productions and AcheeTV, as they brought to life the visuals in his head, replaying the inception of this song...
