Talk about the ultimate mashup! Talented composer and musician, Jocelyn Hagen, known for her amazing mashups (and much more) joins the ArtLess fellas for an intriguing discussion about Jocelyn's soon to premiere and SOLD OUT opera, The Song Poet. Described as "The first Hmong story adapted for the operatic stage, St. Paul writer Kao Kalia Yang’s memoir The Song Poet comes to life in this world premiere. It tells the story of Yang’s family and her song poet father as war drives them from the mountains of Laos into a Thai refugee camp and ultimately on to the challenging world of life as a refugee. With his poetry, Kalia’s father inspires hope in his family, polishing their reality so that they might shine."
