David most recently performed the poetry of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda on July 8 during the West Cork Literary Festival in Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland. An article which promoted the festival can be found here.
We are pleased to offer you this special recording by David Soul of Pablo Neruda‘s poetry. David writes, “Though I’ve never really been a great fan of poetry per se, Neruda has won me over. He’s opened the doors to an essential art form and rich and visceral experience in both language and emotion. The raw sensuality and tenderness of his love poetry; the surreal simplicity of his celebration of all things ordinary; and the power of his epic poetry combined with his passion for social justice and unwavering solidarity with the oppressed, testifies to a man whose life’s work remains as relevant and vital today as it ever was.”
We support David — and China too — so we’re including here, and soon in other areas of our fan site, direct links to the vendors from which China’s debut CD, Secrets & Words, may be purchased.
From 1984. Songs include “Troubador,” “Silver Lady,” “Don’t Give Up On Us,” “Mary’s Fancy,” and more.
David and China appeared briefly on the Steve Wright in the Afternoon program on BBC Radio 2 on May 18, 2011. Their spot left us hanging; we hoped they might come back to David and China after the break because we wanted to hear more from them, but they didn’t.
So this is their segment as broadcast. Enjoy!
