LOF 1804 Show #3 with guest Val Jeanty (@Val_Inc) (AUDIO)
My guest last night on Legacy of 1804 was Val Jeanty. We discussed her life's mission, her art, her spirituality. Several callers chimed in including our first guest Katia Ulysse of Voices from Haiti!
About Val: Haitian electronic music composer/percussionist/turntablist Val Jeanty evokes the musical esoteric realms of the creative subconscious. She incorporates her African Haitian Musical traditions into the present and beyond, combining acoustics with electronics and the archaic with the post-modern. Her "Afro-Electronica" installations have been showcased in New York City at the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Village Vanguard and internationally at SaalFelden Music Festival in Austria, Stanser Musiktage in Switzerland, Jazz à la Villette in France, and the Biennale Di Venezia Museum in Italy.
