Description

Nouveau Griot is the result of 20 years on stage and in studio. It is the text from four spoken word audio recordings made between 2004-2016: Invisible World, The Memorists, Language for Gods and ZENSHIP. This work is in the continuum of the griot, which is a french African word meaning “poet, singer and traveling musician […] to whom supernatural powers are often attributed.”
