How many spoken word DJs can you name?…exactly. Assuming you know of none or very few we think you only really need to know about one: LAPKAT. The phenomena that is LAPKAT is actually a lovely lady called Lisa Greenway who used to edit publications by our blog crush Going Down Swinging. Originally based in Australia LAPKAT’s mix of diverse global beats and storytelling has taken her across the world as she travels throughout Europe lending her unique sonic experience to poetry and music gigs. Check out her blog, where she shares all the inside knowledge on the artists who are blurring the line between poetry and music and most importantly delve into her mixes section where Woody Allen interspersed with electro swing will suddenly sound like the best idea you’ve ever heard. The way in which Lisa mixes languages, cultures and sounds is a form of poetry within itself (and over 1000 blog followers agree) So this Friday we salute you LAPKAT, for fighting the good fight to keep poetry evolving. You can keep up with Lisa’s movements and follow her on twitter here.
