The Sonoglyph Collective

The Sonoglyph Collective fuses poetry, storytelling, songwriting, and spoken word with improvisational music to create unique and spontaneous performances. The group consists of poets Hawona Sullivan Janzen, Ibé Kaba, Kathryn Kysar, and Lynette Reini-Grandell; and musicians Aaron Kerr (cello), Sean Egan (clarinet), and Jonathan Townsend (percussion).

They have given performances and workshops throughout the Twin Cities, at venues including the Blue Harbor Center for the Arts, the East Side Freedom Library, the Wolf House, the Saint Paul Public Library, the Normandale Writing Festival, and the University of Minnesota's Witness Creative Writing Project.

“The evening’s performance had poets, musicians and audience riding the waves of literary and sonic interplay – splashing, sunning and laughing in the best tradition of collaboration.” – Steve Peterson, Twin Cities arts photographer.
