Avotcja is a poet/multi-instrumentalist/educator who is a Bay Area icon. She is of Taino Indian Caribbean and African descent, born in New York City and published in more anthologies than she can remember. With her band, Modupue, she combines music and poetry so seamlessly, we wonder why it was ever separated. She is a radio host for both KPFA in Berkeley and KPOO in San Francisco, where she focuses on music and poetry. Avotcja has performed with Rashaan Roland Kirk, Bobi and Luis Cespedes, Diane diPrima, Michael Franti just to name a few.
