Back in the East Village I went to the famous La Mama Theater [http://www.lamama.org/] to hear my friend Donysha Smith in the Poetry Electric Series. Getting to hear a spectrum of woman speak about their life experiences, which are as different as they were, was another treat that’s so easy to sample in NYC. Hosted by William Electric Black, we heard Donysha, Michelle Valladares, Ilka Scobie, rap, swoon or sway with the rhythm of their words, mesmerizing us with the melodies and words marinated in meaning. Her next performance is Monday, January 16, 2006 in the amplified poetry experience of “Rock Poets,” which is spokenword meets rock n roll.
