saba hasan reads her poems

this video comprises 3 of my voice installations, the first of which was on the ramparts of the Hohenburg Castle in Salzburg then later at Columbia University, New York and among the audience at a Bob Dylan concert in Brooklyn.

” My poems are in a homeless language, a paradox of connections between places that I have lived in Russia, India, America, Switzerland, France and a mystifying preoccupation with songs, I have heard being called ghazals. From Tagore as much as from Pushkin, Ghalib or Lorca, I have learnt to speak in a voice invoking many myths.”

My poems are in a homeless language, a paradox of connections between places that I have lived in Russia, India, America, Switzerland, France and a mystifying preoccupation with songs, I have heard being called ghazals. From Tagore as much as from Pushkin, Ghalib or Lorca,

I have learnt to speak in a voice invoking many myths.”
