goa india poetry

The following are audio files from readings I have either participated in as a reader/performer, or as an audience member, since 2008.These audio files are rooted in events literary in nature, though some of the recordings may be of other disciplines, including music, talks, and so on. The files are in .MP3 format, but in some cases, .WAV is also available–simply e-mail me and I will let you know what is possible.
