Poetry Uncut: Part III

J. Ivy hosts Def Sound and Sunni Patterson

“Emerging from the musical womb that is New Orleans, Sunni Patterson combines the heritage of her native town with an enlightened modern style to create music and poetry that is timeless in its groove.” — TED

Spoken-word artist J. Ivy hosts the third program in our Poetry Uncut series. Get Lit starts us off with raucous spoken word. L.A.’s Def Sound traverses the worlds of hip-hop and poetry; and Sunni Patterson explores the poetic and spiritual traditions of her native New Orleans. The evening is scored by Emmy Award-winning DJ Niena Drake.
