In addition to working with traditional texts, he sings and recites his own poetry and experiments with spoken word, rap, and hip hop. Ben Selim will join us live to speak about his music and answer audience questions. He will be introduced by Alain Weber, artistic director of the World Sacred Spirit Festival.
