Chicks on Speed presents: Louise Landes Levi (USA)

Poet, Performer, translato and traveler.
Louise is performing in Cologne with collaborator Hilary Jeffery (Trombone drones) and Cologne based artists Saskia von Klitzing (Drums) Nelly Ellinor (Keys) and Melissa E. Logan (Tenor Sax) for a one off, unique evening. In the 1960’s Louise co founded the Floating Lotus Magic Opera Company, studied UC-Berkeley with the sarangi-master Pandit Ram Narayan. She traveled alone overland to Afghanistan in the late 1960s and to India, via Istanbul, Tabriz, Mashed, Herat, Kandahar Kabul, Peshawar, Rawalpundi and Lahore, to research North Indian sangeet (classical music) and its poetic tradition.
John Giorno writes: “Her poems sing in the mind and dance through the heart and throat, and arms & legs, w. great clarity and bliss. Louise is Saranswati, goddess of poetry.” Levi has studied with such masters as Annapurna Devi, Ali Akbar Khan & La Monte Young. When not performing, she lives in a stone tower in Bangor, Italy, with winter quarters in New York, her birthplace.

her list of translations include The Love Poems of Mira Bai , and numerous other cultural treasures.
