Main stage - Friday evening = Kurtis Lamkin

The Friday evening session in the Main Tent opened with Sekou Sundiata's band playing. The lead vocalist did a Mirabai poem. Her voice was wonderful, enchanting. I did not catch the names of the individuals in the band. I was hoping they would be in the program but they weren't.
The band played well!
Kurtis Lamkin took the stage as the first poet for the evening. He brought his kora and used it for some of the poems.
"Queen of the birds"
"Jump Mama"
The are no words for what he does mixing his words with the kora. It is a sight and sound for the experience. A memorable occasion that won't be soon forgotten.
