André Velter

André Velter

(1945), French poet, winner of the Goncourt Prize for poetry in 1996 has begun his first journeys in 1955 through Europe and the Middle East. As a result, his poetry displays a varied and colorful relation to the places, sounds and rhythms of the cultures he has visited. Velter has experimented with improvised songs and polyphonic poetry. His work with France Culture combined with frequent poetry recitals, alone or with dance and instrumentation, show commitment to poetry as an actively performed medium.
