On becoming the poem and evoking the sublime
This month, we launch a regular column by Harmony Holiday, who’ll share her thoughts on a selected recording from the Afrosonics archive. First up: how an unforgettable sample led her to saxophonist Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s poetic musings — and the joyful discovery that jazz and poetry could be “one gallant being.”
Our new guest contributor, Harmony Holiday, presents her Astrosonics Event Number 1: introducing us to an alive, ever-expanding archive of out-of-print and rare Diaspora poetry and writing.
@khellonmars, Tyehimba Jess & Harmony Holiday take the stage at our reading series’ next installment
