Notes

In A surprisingly short span of time the One World Poerty Festival has developed into one of the largest and most important poetry events in the world. Having sprung from the counter-culture of the 1960's, the festival's organizers have always opted for those who reflect the latest developments in poetry from several different countries and cultures as well as exploring the areas where poetry and other art forms meet such as: theatre, the visual arts and (especially) music.

The fourth annual festival held in 1981 attracted a record number of 12,000 visitors. The main theme was War Against War. 63 poets from all over the globe gathered together in Amsterdam to let their voices be heard in a divided world. The power of the word was given ample proof. The pen - and especially the voice - is mightier than the sword.

This is One World Poetry's first record album presentation. Recorded live at the One World Poetry Festival 1981 in the Melkweg Amsterdam
