The Poetry Project


Kazim Ali & Charmaine Lee

Watch video here


From the single voice come many. In the breathtaking poems of Kazim Ali and the extraordinary soundscapes of Charmaine Lee, we follow the breadth of possibilities in the human voice -- evocative, choral, documentary, alarming, and otherworldly. We're thrilled to welcome these artists for an evening of poetry, sound, music, and lyric.  


Enthusiastic readers and followers of Ali's work are encouraged to purchase his newest book, The Voice of Sheila Chandra, available for pre-order from the publisher.
