Dante’s Poetry Lounge
This is a compilation of poems and spoken word pieces from actor/poet and iconic Asian American figure, Dante Basco. These are some of the poems that help start the spoken word movement in Los Angeles in the early 1990’s. He is one of the founders of, “DPL – Da Poetry Lounge,” (formerly “Dante’s Poetry Lounge”) which became the premiere poetry venue on the West Coast. These poems paint the portrait of a young artist in the sometimes crazy city of LA, living the Hollywood life. It’s all about, life, politics, love, sex and Hip Hop.
