John Tavano and I were thrilled to hear Parisian singer Anne Marie Codur and pianist Jill Borenstein perform our song, “La Girafe” at the Boston National Poetry Month Concert last night. It was a wonderful evening all around: Sufi poetry read to the accompaniment of the Turkish bowed tambour, Derek Walcott’s poetry paired with the mesmerizing sound of steel pans —even a Japanese pop song!
I’m both excited and a little daunted to be part of the Words and Music Symposium at Berklee College of Music coming up in April. John Tavano and I will talk about the songs we wrote for our CD, The Subtle Thread. The French vocalist Anne-Marie Codur will perform “La Girafe”!
