Imaginative and effective chosen words that express introspection or come from intuition define poetry. I have a strong inner knowing about harPoetry = harp + (spoken) Poetry ; spoken word combined with harp-sounds alter the reality of the original music and text in a soulful and wondrous way. Such a touching and vulnerable synergy has arisen between the tone of vocals and the singing harp. My instrument almost sounds like a human voice that speaks enigmatic words and yet a recognizable language that touches the essence within the listener / harPoetry is a voice beyond words, that's why i am with the poet . 

The poem PATERNOSTER is an affirmation that every (wo)man should hear. These transformative words inspire, activate and empower, especially as read by the South-African Antjie Krog ! The video has English subtitles so everyone can understand and enjoy the poetry !
