I went to a club in Brooklyn to see Billy Harper years back (the club was in Park Slope, on Flatbush Avenue, lasted a few months). I used to take my older daughter to shows at the time to "break her in" (it worked, she can identify Monk tunes along with Beyoncé...didn't work with my younger daughter, though). We talked to Billy Harper for a few minutes before his set, and he called out sweetly from the stage to my daughter at the beginning of the set. She still remembers it, as do I, it was a great gesture; he was such a sweet gentleman.

In theory, this should be the last interview before the citizenship process starts next year. Part of the reason she isn't moving down anytime soon, is that the employees at the NYC immigration and citizenship office are more likely to be sympathetic then one in FL.

Confusion, failure and insolence (yes, good name for band, album, law or accounting firm) was what I got in my rookie engagements with Siri.

Doug, we saw Sona Jobarteh last evening. The only female griot kora player to my knowledge. Her Calabash player was a live wire, as are most percussionist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/23/18 11:07am Doug Schulkind:

Interesting to ponder, sinner.

@Brian in UK
The griot business is still "heavily gendered."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/23/18 11:08am Brian in UK:

I remember seeing Ba Sissoko a few years back. There were two kora players strutting about the stage wearing their instruments. It was so phallic.

Dark daughter of the lotus leaves that watch the Southern Sea!

Wan spirit of a prisoned soul a-panting to be free!

The muttered music of thy streams, the whisper of the deep,

Have kissed each other in God’s name and kissed a world to sleep.

The will of the world is a whistling wind, sweeping a cloud-swept sky,

And not from the East and not from the West knelled that

soul-waking cry,

But out of the South,—the sad, black South—it screamed from

the top of the sky,

Crying: “Awake, O ancient race!” Wailing, “O woman, arise!”

And crying and sighing and crying again as a voice in the

midnight cries,—

But the burden of white men bore her back and the white world

stifled her sighs.

The white world’s vermin and filth:

All the dirt of London,

All the scum of New York;

Valiant spoilers of women

And conquerers of unarmed men;

Shameless breeders of bastards,

Drunk with the greed of gold,

Baiting their blood-stained hooks

With cant for the souls of the simple;

Bearing the white man’s burden

Of liquor and lust and lies!

Unthankful we wince in the East,

Unthankful we wail from the westward,

Unthankfully thankful, we curse,

In the unworn wastes of the wild:

I hate them, Oh!

I hate them well,

I hate them, Christ!

As I hate hell!

If I were God,

I’d sound their knell

This day!

Who raised the fools to their glory,

But black men of Egypt and Ind,

Ethiopia’s sons of the evening,

Indians and yellow Chinese,

Arabian children of morning,

And mongrels of Rome and Greece?

Ah, well!

And they that raised the boasters

Shall drag them down again,—

Down with the theft of their thieving

And murder and mocking of men;

Down with their barter of women

And laying and lying of creeds;

Down with their cheating of childhood

And drunken orgies of war,—

down

down

deep down,

Till the devil’s strength be shorn,

Till some dim, darker David, a-hoeing of his corn,

And married maiden, mother of God,

Bid the black Christ be born!

Then shall our burden be manhood,

Be it yellow or black or white;

And poverty and justice and sorrow,

The humble, and simple and strong

Shall sing with the sons of morning

And daughters of even-song:

Black mother of the iron hills that ward the blazing sea,

Wild spirit of a storm-swept soul, a-struggling to be free,

Where ‘neath the bloody finger-marks thy riven bosom quakes,

Thicken the thunders of God’s Voice and lo! a world awakes!

Here is a dumb question. How do you read poetry books? I have Seamus Heaney and Charles Beaudelaire from the library. I cannot just read it like fiction because it seems to diminish the poems as they need time to be absorbed.
