This week (and next) you can hear me, along with Julie Bates of Intermedia Arts talk to Marya Morstad, host of Art Matters on KFAI radio about "Singing the Legacy of Sekou Sundiata," an event that was held at Intermedia Arts that continues the work of the late poet, performance artist, musician and educator.

Interview with Punky Popsters Ebony Bones

Ebony Bones rock some sort of clownish fashion that is wholly original. They are gaining momentum on the continent. Check them out here. The only problem I have is when she says that some middle aged 40 year old jumped on the stage...frickin' children.

BlackBloggah on the Walker's Off Center Blog Singing Sekou's Legacy

I blogged today on the Walker Art Center's blog...


Unlike others who in print lie forever prone on a page; Sundiata rises holographically even now in his voice (listen to him on the web- linked here); ghostly returning to stand before us, nearly as gorgeous and tall as he was in life; convening and communicating in his crooner’s baritone; lulling in his clear tones – smoothing over the very depths he so expertly navigated. Making it all seem so easy (His Coolness forever preserved). Listen in. He tells how he temporarily escaped the inevitable through transplantation, accident and re-creation. In the end, by aligning himself with voice – perhaps he mastered expiration; escaped the final silence by refusing to just be written down.

We return this week to his work (an expiration of voice together in song and conversation); perhaps, to dance our own undoing; to be with him in passing.
