LaDonna Smith has been on the international new music scene for well over 30 years. An active performer, recently recording and touring with Misha Feigin, Russian guitarist/balalai/poet, recently published an exciting current release, Deviant Shakti, with NY percussionist/drummer Michael Evans. From Birmingham Alabama, she is an active educator & avid presenter of improvised music in her native geographic area. By networking with organizers and musicians from other cities, and through her work with the improvisor journal, she has been responsible for keeping improvised music alive in the South Eastern United States. In 1996 & 2004 she organized the Birmingham International Improvisation Festival, which featured performers from Sweden, Russia, Japan and Ukraine in concert and workshop, as well as a host of regional and national participants in music, theatre, and dance. She plans to host another major regional festival celebrating the 30 year anniversary of the improvisor in 2010....
AwardsAs a non self promoter, hailing from the state of Alabama, where arts support is not strong, and the Senators could not give "two hoots", LaDonna takes no awards.
