Dareka Daremo to Guest at SpokenWord Paris January 28th–Monday’s Theme: Whirlwind

portrait dareka“Dareka performs his poetry since 2005 in France, then in USA, and everywhere his feet can land on. He is now traveling through France and Europe, and the world when he has the time and the chance to do so, to satisfy his thirst for poetry. He has hosted the most popular Paris poetry weekly French venue, “Slam au Downtown”, for two years when he wasn’t rocking the stage with his experimental fusion punk jazz spoken word band, La Bête Aveugle. He is now signed into the young and dynamic music label En Garde! Records both with his band and as a solo artist.

In December 2018, he released his book « Tourbillons » (Whirlwinds), Xérographes Editions, in collaboration with Gaspard, a young graduate from the Beaux Arts de Paris. Both a collection of poems and a punk fantasy illustrations book, it represents an elegant synthesis of Dareka’s poems, once performed, sung, screamed, whispered or simply written without having ever been read out loud. Just as his life, his poems are metamorphic animals, and he’s a zoo keeper in hell. They are trees and buildings, little skeletons dancing under the moonlight, lonely kids lost in urban mazes, sewing needles stuck in his frail stupid little heart. They are maelstrom of rhymes, soda drinks in a night bar, for a drunken public. They are you, they are him, they are life and death kissing in a blink, but it does not really matter.”
