The Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry Podcast
7.1 Douglas Kearney: "I Killed, I Died: Banter, Self-Destruction, and the Poetry Reading"

The Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry Podcast

Welcome to the first episode of Season Seven of the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry podcast. Season Seven is comprised of lectures written and delivered by Douglas Kearney during his tenure as a Bagley Wright Lecturer. We begin with Kearney's talk, "I Killed, I Died: Banter, Self-Destruction, and the Poetry Reading." This talk was originally given September 25, 2020, at Cave Canem, via Zoom. While reading from early drafts of Patter, a collection about miscarriage, infertility, and making a Black family in the U.S., Douglas Kearney's relationship to audiences at poetry gigs changed. Informed by stand-up, improvisational music, and artists from Nina Simone to the Black Took Collective, Kearney began engaging the time between poems—the banter—to activate the imaginative space of association, mess, and discomfort he pursues in his written work: live. This lecture will get into the tension between pain and its performance, comedians' ideas of “killing” and dying,“ along with tips on how to sprint into a stone wall without getting hurt much. There are two brief moments where the audio cuts out in this recording. At around nine minutes, Kearney says, "'Miscarriages' were the sum of the takeaway that I couldn't, then shouldn't, make anyone feel what I had felt. And why? I would love to say that it would be to avoid cruelty…”. At around fourteen minutes, after "Just pay me for writing the damn poem!" Kearney continues, "Banter is of unknown etymological origins...". Visit us at our website, www.bagleywrightlectures.org, for more information about Bagley Wright lecturers, as well as links to supplementary materials on each lecturer's archive page, including selected writings. Douglas Kearney's book based on his BWLS lectures, Optic Subwoof (Wave Books, 2022) is forthcoming in November, and is available for preorder here.

Combining punk rock with glam, gothic rockabilly, and blues, her music is unabashedly direct and politically charged.

Brief summary of episode:Kesha Bruce, Born and raised in Iowa, she completed a BFA from the University of Iowa before earning an MFA in painting from Hunter College in New York City. Kesha Bruce has been awarded fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), The Vermont Studio Center, The CAMAC Foundation and the Puffin Foundation. Her work is included in the collections of The Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture (14 pieces), The Amistad Center for Art and Culture, The University of Iowa Women's Center, The En Foco Photography Collection and MOMA's Franklin Furnace Artist Book Collection. She has been represented by Morton Fine Art since 2011.Morton Fine Art is pleased to announce Take Me to the Water, a solo exhibition of mixed-media paintings by artist Kesha Bruce. An intuitive combination of painting, collage and textile art, Bruce's work represents the culmination of a holistic creative practice developed by the artist over several decades. Her eighth exhibition with the gallery, Take Me to the Water will be on view from September 17 to October 11, 2022 at Morton's Washington, D.C. space. The wall works of Kesha Bruce are less discrete executions of a concerted vision than the steady accumulation of a long creative process. Referred to by the artist simply as paintings, these mixed-media compositions are in fact patchworks of painted fabric, individually selected from Bruce's vast archive and pasted directly onto the canvas in a textile collage that can sometimes resemble a quilt. The result of a slow and perpetual artistic method, each work represents hours of treatment, selection and juxtaposition until the whole becomes manifestly greater than its parts. Bruce's process ends with her titling of each work: a poetic articulation of what the work is at this point capable of expressing for itself.Much like water, the routine behind Bruce's artmaking is cyclical and in service to a greater equilibrium – a pointed contrast to many of the epitomic works that make up much of the traditional art histories of the past several centuries, and which tend to aggressively emphasize rupture, madness and unsustainability as the most fruitful mothers of invention. Bruce's process is distinctly different, and points to more a promising alternative for artmaking, in which creativity and lived experience are inseparably intertwined. For Bruce, this means that art can be not only a form of self-care but an act of self-discovery. Noting that her color palette has become markedly warmer since she moved to Arizona (where she currently serves as the Director of Artist's Programs for the state's Commission on the Arts), the artist delineates her method as a form of strategic openness – making room and taking time to allow the materials to guide her toward their final form, rather than the other way around.The show's title, Take Me to the Water, alludes to a 1969 rendition of the traditional gospel song by Nina Simone at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Bruce locates something transcendent in the recording of Simone's performance that encapsulates what any form of artmaking, at its best, can be: a conversation between oneself and the divine. Deftly aware of the elemental power of water as a force that follows its own paths and forms its own shapes, Bruce identifies her artistic process closely with this element, and notes how the transcendental effects which result from it can be as overwhelming and rhythmic as the ocean waves of Big Sur. As an exhibiting artist for over 25 years, Bruce has steadily oriented her craft toward capturing and encouraging the process of artmaking as an end in its own right – a way both of making something new and taking stock of oneself. As an administrator who oversees the creative programming for the entire state of Arizona, Bruce is intuitively attuned to the reciprocal relationship between transcendent acts of self-expression and the quotidian struggle to survive. In this role, she is a mentor and advocate for hundreds of other artists; the example she sets in her own artistic practice, with its emphasis on personal growth over commercial capitulation, thus becomes a form of potent political praxis. The Truth In This ArtThe Truth In This Art is a podcast interview series supporting vibrancy and development of Baltimore & beyond's arts and culture. Mentioned in this episode:Kesha BruceCome see Kesha Bruce's 8th exhibition with Morton Fine Art starting Sept. 17 To find more amazing stories from the artist and entrepreneurial scenes in & around Baltimore, check out my episode directory. Stay in TouchNewsletter sign-upSupport my podcastShareable link to episode ★ Support this podcast ★

From rubbing elbows with NY scene makers at Max's Kansas City and CBGB, to being the19 year-old talent booker at the legendary Ritz, to making history as a 24 year-old A&R exec, signing the biggest metal band in a generation in Metallica, Michael Alago was on fire. Passion and excess would bring Alago crashing into the twin reapers of substance abuse and AIDS, but surviving them both he reinvented himself as an art photographer...healthy, sober, and as passionate as ever. Michael joins us to talk about the early New York City scene, Metallica, Public Image Limited, Nina Simone, and his photography. It's an incredible journey. Join us!

Une soirée avec la diva malienne Oumou Sangaré pour la sortie de son album "Timbuktu"

Le 29 avril 2022, Oumou Sangaré a sorti son album Timbuktu (Oumsang/World Circuit/BMG). Nous l'avons rencontrée début février 2022 à Issy.  Oumou, son histoire par Francis Dordor Depuis Moussolou, son premier album sorti en 1989, la vie de la chanteuse malienne Oumou Sangaré n'a connu aucun répit. De ce riche et trépidant voyage, on retient notamment des enregistrements parmi les plus décisifs de la musique africaine contemporaine, tous produits par le label World Circuit : Ko Sira en 1993, Worotan en 1996 et Seya nominé dans la catégorie Meilleur album de World Music des Grammy Awards en 2009. De nombreuses tournées internationales et la consécration obtenue sur les scènes prestigieuses que sont l'Opéra de Sydney, le Queen Elizabeth Hall de Londres ou le Nippon Budokan de Tokyo, complètent ce tableau d'honneur.  Timbuktu, première production de son label Oumsang constitue le nouvel acte de cette épopée musicale sans équivalent à laquelle World Circuit est à nouveau associée. Il consacre cette artiste issue des quartiers pauvres de Bamako devenue une superstar mondiale, ainsi qu'une icône féministe unanimement admirée. D'une aura puissante comparable à celle d'une Grace Jones, icone noire transgressive par excellence, Oumou a depuis longtemps franchi les barrières séparant genres musicaux et continents. Hier, invitée par Alicia Keys pour un duo télévisé, elle est désormais citée en exemple par des artistes aussi considérables qu'Aya Nakamura, qui lui a dédié la chanson Oumou Sangaré en 2017, ou Beyoncé, qui a samplé l'une de ses plus célèbres créations, Diaraby Néné, pour le titre Mood 4 Eva tiré de la bande originale du film The Lion King : The Gift en 2019.  ►Oumou Sangaré sur RFI musiques Sa carrière menée tambour battant sans la moindre pause a pourtant connu une interruption avec la crise sanitaire en 2020. En mars de cette année-là (2020), suite au FIWA (Festival International du Wassoulou), événement qu'elle a créé en 2016 pour promouvoir sa région d'origine du sud Mali, elle se rend aux États-Unis. Initialement prévu pour durer deux semaines, son séjour se prolonge en raison du confinement. D'abord à New York, puis à Baltimore où elle trouve rapidement ses marques. "Quelque chose m'a immédiatement attirée dans cette ville. Je m'y suis sentie si bien que j'ai voulu acquérir une maison."  Une fois installée là, elle occupe ses journées à composer avec une ancienne connaissance, Mamadou Sidibé, qui fut le premier joueur de kamele n'goni (le luth traditionnel) à l'accompagner à ses débuts. À la faveur de cette réclusion forcée, vont naître dix des onze chansons constituant Timbuktu, recueil qui noue d'intimes correspondances sonores entre les instruments traditionnels ouest-africains et ceux liés à l'histoire du blues. Notamment entre le kamele n'goni et ces lointains héritiers que sont la guitare dobro et la guitare slide, jouées ici par Pascal Danaë, co-réalisateur de l'album avec Nicolas Quéré. De cette séquence particulière du confinement, où le temps s'est pour ainsi dire arrêté, où l'artiste comme la femme d'affaires se sont trouvées dans une situation inédite d'isolement, loin du tumulte et des sollicitations incessantes, Oumou a tiré le meilleur. "Depuis 1990, je n'avais jamais eu la possibilité de me couper du monde de la sorte pour me consacrer exclusivement à la musique. De ce point de vue, le confinement a été une chance pour moi car il m'a permis de rester concentrée sur le travail de composition. Je pense que la musique s'en ressent, mais aussi les textes qui sont le fruit de moments où j'ai pu me retirer en moi même pour méditer." Jamais ses paroles n'ont en effet accédé à une telle qualité poétique, une telle profondeur. Jamais ne l'a t-on trouvé aussi inspirée à livrer ses réflexions sur les indéchiffrables mystères de l'existence, la situation périlleuse que traverse son pays ou sur la condition des femmes africaines, preuve que même devenue puissante, elle n'a rien renié de ses engagements de jeunesse. Entre l'introspection de Degui N'Kelena, la langueur amoureuse exprimée dans Kanou, la compassion dans Demissimw, l'exaspération dans Kêlê Magni ou la fierté dans Wassulu Don, beaucoup d'états d'âme nourrissent ce disque. Trouvant dans l'habillage sonore réalisé par Danaë et Quéré, qui à la dynamique des rythmes traditionnels du Wassoulou  additionne celle propre au langage musical contemporain, une probante mise en valeur, Timbuktu s'impose ainsi comme le plus ambitieux et abouti d'une discographie déjà émérite. Si le titre Timbuktu renvoie à l'actualité politique du Mali, pays menacé de désintégration et cherchant dans son histoire, dont cette ville du nord-est le plus puissant symbole, des motifs d'espérer, beaucoup de chansons renvoient à l'expérience singulière de la chanteuse. Quand dans Sira (littéralement "le baobab" en bambara), elle évoque la progéniture de familles érudites et aisées qui, malgré cela, verse dans la délinquance et gâche un avenir prometteur, c'est presque inconsciemment pour souligner par contraste l'exemplarité de sa propre trajectoire… Née à Bamako, le 2 février 1968, Oumou Sangaré est la fille cadette d'une famille appartenant à l'ethnie peule du Wassoulou. Sa mère, Aminata Diakité, est chanteuse comme le fut sa propre mère Noumouténé. Oumou a très peu connu son père, Diari Sangaré, qui a quitté le foyer familial lorsqu'elle avait deux ans. Abandonnée, Aminata se fait alors commerçante pour faire vivre ses quatre enfants. Oumou lui vient en aide en vendant des sachets d'eau dans la rue. Ayant pris l'habitude de suivre sa mère dans les "soumous" (cérémonies nuptiales ou baptismales) que celle-ci anime, elle s'octroie déjà une part de prestige par la clarté et la puissance d'une voix qui, jaillissant d'un corps d'enfant, éblouit l'auditoire. Elle ne tarde d'ailleurs pas à s'accaparer toute la gloire à l'occasion d'un concours interscolaire où elle fait gagner son école du quartier de Douadabougou en chantant devant 3 000 personnes réunies dans le Stade omnisports de Bamako. Passée par l'Ensemble National du Mali et le groupe Djoliba, Oumou a déjà une longue carrière professionnelle derrière elle quand à 18 ans, elle s'apprête à enregistrer à Abidjan sa première cassette produite par Abdoulaye Samassa (qui a dû lui offrir sa propre voiture pour la convaincre d'entrer en studio). Rééditée en CD et vinyle par World Circuit en 2016, la cassette intitulée Moussolou ("les femmes" en bambara) se vend à l'époque à plus de 250 000 exemplaires, un record resté inégalé en Afrique de l'Ouest. Si la musique très dansante caractéristique du Wassoulou l'explique en partie, la raison de ce succès tient beaucoup aux textes chantés, parfois rugit, par cette jeune lionne qui, depuis son plus jeune âge, a dû se battre pour survivre. Se dressant avec fougue contre les abus de la tradition patriarcale, qui autorise la polygamie, le mariage forcé et l'excision, Oumou devient du jour au lendemain l'égérie d'une cause féministe qui n'a aucune assise véritable dans cette partie du monde. Sa carrière et ses enregistrements restent ainsi marqués comme au fer rouge par cette double dimension : être une femme et avoir une origine sociale qui l'a rendue singulièrement sensible à toutes les formes d'injustices. Timbuktu ne fait pas exception. Ainsi Gniani Sara (littéralement "la récompense de la souffrance") renvoie-t-il à son combat de toujours en faveur de la condition féminine. "J'ai osé aborder ce sujet avant tout le monde et même risqué ma vie en le faisant  dit elle aujourd'hui. Ma récompense c'est d'avoir réussi à éveiller les consciences. Surtout au sein de la jeune génération. Voir Aya Nakamura ou Beyoncé me prendre en exemple vaut tous les prix et toutes les distinctions du monde". ► Biographie Pourtant, devenir la plus grande et la plus influente chanteuse africaine vivante ne lui a pas suffi. Depuis trente ans, Oumou s'est aussi illustrée dans le domaine économique et l'action sociale. À la tête de plusieurs entreprises touchant à l'hôtellerie, l'agriculture ou au négoce d'automobiles à travers sa marque Oum Sang, elle emploie actuellement près de 200 personnes à temps plein. Quant à la fondation Oumou Sangaré, créée il y a dix ans pour venir en aide aux femmes et aux enfants en situation difficile, elle parachève pour ainsi dire une œuvre artistique jamais éloignée de convictions humanistes. Élevée au grade de Commandeur de l'Ordre National du Mali, faite Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres de la République Française, Oumou est devenue Ambassadrice de bonne volonté de la F.A.O. (Organisation des Nations unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture) en 2003, après avoir reçu le prix de l'UNESCO deux ans plus tôt. Mais cette réussite, Oumou doit la payer au prix fort. Après avoir subi les blessures de l'enfance parmi les plus cruelles- l'abandon, l'extrême misère- elle doit aujourd'hui se protéger des maux que la notoriété lui attire, la jalousie, la calomnie, la trahison. Autant d'atteintes qu'elle expose dans Sarama, et qu'elle s'encourage à dépasser dans Dily Oumou. En découle la solitude évoquée dans Degui N'Kelena, autour de laquelle se cristallise le thème de la séparation et de la perte qu'elle entend affronter à la manière stoïcienne, accueillant chaque événement avec une lucidité agissante. Une force qu'elle tire intégralement de la musique elle-même, dont la puissance renvoie à celle des chasseurs du Wassoulou qui en sont les inventeurs. En effet, la confrérie de ceux qu'on appelle "Donsow" ("Donso" au singulier) est à l'origine des rythmes utilisés par toutes les chanteuses modernes, elles-mêmes baptisées "kònò" (oiseau). Instrument emblématique de ce répertoire le donso-ngoni,  modernisé en kamel n'goni  (la harpe des jeunes) dans les années 1950, reste à la base de toutes les compositions d'Oumou. Tel un guide chant, celui de Mamadou Sidibé structure l'ensemble des compositions de Timbuktu, comme il attire par sa tonalité pentatonique les superbes développements à la guitare de Pascal Danaë. En utilisant une  Harmony Stratotone sur Wassulu Don (littéralement "la culture du Wassoulou"), un dobro resonator sur Degui N'Kelena et Sarama, ou la technique du bottleneck sur Sira, le musicien semble à chaque fois renvoyer à la sonorité métallique caractéristique du kamel n'gnoni, nouant ainsi une enivrante complicité élective entre les genres musicaux et les continents.  Que surmonter la souffrance et faire face à toutes les adversités traverse l'ensemble du répertoire d'Oumou Sangaré n'est pas un hasard compte tenu de son passé. Cette dominante n'est probablement pas étrangère non plus au fait que lors de cérémonies qui leur sont propres, certains chasseurs s'infligent des sévices pour mieux les dépasser, vont jusqu'à avaler des tisons ardents ou se larder de coups de poignards tout en dansant, tandis que les chanteurs invoquent des forces relevant de la surnature. C'est à cette confiance intraitable que fait référence Wassulu Don. C'est cette culture aux fondements telluriques, à la portée universelle que célèbre ici sa plus célèbre représentante, une chanteuse qui à la manière des plus grandes, Aretha Franklin ou Nina Simone, sublime la douleur et, plus que jamais, éclaire de son génie propre la musique, toute la musique, et pas seulement africaine. "La musique est en moi !", proclame Oumou. "Sans elle je ne suis rien, et rien ne peut me l'enlever ! Dans ce disque j'ai mis ma vie, toute ma vie, cette vie où j'ai connu la faim, l'humiliation de la pauvreté, la peur et dont je tire aujourd'hui la gloire."

Today, it's an unassuming beige building on a busy Berkeley street. But in the 1970s, the Rainbow Sign was a groundbreaking center for Black culture, politics, and art. It hosted dozens of high-profile Black thought leaders and performers, including James Baldwin, Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, and Shirley Chisholm. The Rainbow Sign was open to all – as a performance venue, political organizing space, and cafe. It lasted just a few short years, from 1971-1977. But it left profound mark on the young people who attended concerts and performances there, including Vice President Kamala Harris. This episode first aired on January 7, 2022.

Denis' career encompasses almost every aspect of show business from singing and performing to recording and composing. His musical career began at the age of six as a banjolele-playing singer at children's matinees.

From pop star to award-winning TV composer (including the Black Beauty theme and Lovejoy), to award-winning theatre composer (Privates On Parade) and songwriter, and collaborating along the way with such legends as Alan Ayckbourn, Sammy Cahn and Don Black, the artists with whom Denis has worked (and played) read like a who's who of British and American stage and screen--Tony Bennett, Nina Simone, Peter Sellers, Howard Keel, Sophie Tucker, Lena Horne, Alma Cogan, Albert Finney, Dame Edna Everage, Maureen Lipman, Elaine Stritch, Dudley Moore, Bruce Forsyth, Ronnie Corbett, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and even Jimi Hendrix.

‘Novelas distópicas feministas'. Un futuro en el que las mujeres no pueden pensar, hablar, trabajar. Un futuro donde solo son buenas para tener hijos o para realizar labores que los hombres controlan; y mucho se ha escrito sobre este género en el mundo. Patricia del Río aborda esta temática citando diversas historias que nos alertan sobre el peligro de que las mujeres vivan en mundos opresivos. La antropóloga Angélica Motta y la poeta y Violeta Barrientos, activistas feministas, explican por qué últimamente estamos en un contexto de retroceso en cuanto a los derechos de las mujeres se refiere. En el libro de la semana, presentamos a Clemencia Granados, autora de la primera novela de su saga ‘Pangea. Un espía en el palatino', donde recrea un nuevo mundo para la civilización que sobrevivió a la devastadora guerra nuclear. El periodista Diego Pajares recomienda las películas "El cuento de la criada", con Elisabeth Moss y Joseph Fiennes; y "Persépolis", película de animación escrita y dirigida por Majane Satrapi. Mientras que el crítico literario y gerente de ‘Escena libre', nos aproxima a estas lecturas: "Riesgos de los viajes en el tiempo", de Joyce Carol Oates; "Un futuro hogar para el Dios viviente", de Louise Erdrich; y "Ucrónica. Rutas alternativas de la realidad", colección de relatos con varias autoras LA. Las canciones que recrean el programa son: ‘Ripple', de Grateful dead; ‘Fix yoy', de Fearless Soul; ‘Feelings', de Nina Simone; ‘People have the power', de Patty Smith; ‘Power to the people', de John Lennon; ‘Son of a preacher man', de Dusty Springfield; y ‘Libre', de Nino Bravo.
