La Danza Poetica #61 Innervisions

Borrowing the title from Kuzich’s track (via Stevie Wonder’s seminal 1973 album) La Danza Poetica #61 Innervisions is a very conscious dream. Traversing all continents of our external and internal world, traditional folk song and experimental electric folk, melodic global bass rhythms, orchestral electronics, storytelling and intelligent poetics.

Recent releases from Brome, J.Lamotta, Kuzich featuring Mei Saraswati, William Beale, Lido Pimienta, The Turbans, Besarabia, Anna Stereopoulou, Dat Garcia remixed by Space People, the Music Action Collective, DjClick, Lagartijeando remixed by Chancha Vía Circuito, and featuring Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet’s, “Landfall”, now released as an album.

Notes on the show

The truly beguiling Landfall is a live show that I've sadly missed, but thanks to Nonesuch we now have this deep, small album, and a few videos, to take us into the experience.

Laurie Anderson was one of the first catalysts for me to step up to a microphone, and to begin tuning in to the spoken word. Her influence is huge, her poetic and musical heart enormous. That I haven't featured her in the show before is simply a matter of timing. She's just always there, at the heart of things.
