Too Much Life To Be Lived with Nadir Omowale

Jane has Nadir Omowale on the Next Room to talk about the legacy we leave behind. How do we honor our loved ones principals once they transition? How do we uphold their memory at the same time do justice to the lessons they taught us? These topics and more with the man that doesn’t have time to stand still while we explore the Next Room!

Nadir_Omowale_373430575.jpgNadir Omowale doesn’t have time to stand still.  There is far too much life to be lived.The fifteen-time Detroit Music Award winner and former MTV News correspondent is driven by an impassioned activism. All of his hats – performer, producer, creative strategist – are worn by a man who explores as he produces, teaches as he advises, and creates art that honors the fact that life is filled with extremes and in-betweens. The result is infectious, a creative electricity that is essential to who Nadir is. Nadir will tell you that life is too important, not to be an activist. His impressions about life are the essence of his work. His lyrics can tug at heartstrings, tickle funny bones, or evoke an honest look at the world around us, and (possibly more importantly) the world within us. His music is influenced by funk, but don’t call Nadir a funk revivalist. His understanding of rock, R&B, hip hop, and jazz takes funk to a most Nadir-centric next step; a Southern born, and Detroit raised sound that doesn’t fit in traditional boxes. His music reaches across genres and political aisles – sometimes with a gentle, outstretched hand, and occasionally with a clenched fist  – always challenging listeners with a funk inspired, Motor City sound that is as relevant today, as Holland-Dozier-Holland were in the sixties.

About Jane Asher:

Jane Asher is a natural connector, who got her start in the media world through radio in Michigan in 1980. She soon traveled west and has worked at legendary radio stations such as KTYD Santa Barbara, KGB, KSON and KIFM in San Diego. She also received the prestigious Marconi Award for her work on Smooth Jazz KIFM.

Her natural curiosity led her to expand her business by including marketing and social media. When anyone asks her what she does for a living she responds; "I connect inspired people with one another, especially those with a desire to help others."

Jane has been involved in many international missions. She is part of a team that has been building homes in Tijuana for families in need for five years. She has also traveled to El Salvador to feed the homeless; Malaysia to help build a school on Borneo, and Armenia to work with women and children in the small village on Amre Taza. In 2019 she has plans to travel to the Dominican Republic and Africa on humanitarian missions.

After years in broadcasting, voiceover and social media she is finally answering her true calling. Writing. Her forth-coming book In the Next Room deals with her fascination and connection with souls that have transitioned. She is actively in research mode and writing daily. Her new show on Empower is part of her attraction, process and research for her book.
