Poets Yuyutsu Sharma and Eli McCarthy to feature at Bengal Curry Jan 24, 5:30 pm

The Phoenix Reading series at Bengal Curry gets an international flavor this coming Sunday, Jan. 24th at 5:30 p.m., with readings by Yutusu Sharma (Nepal) and Eli McCarthy (Ireland via Spain). Special guest Kat Georges hosts the open reading and you are invited to bring your work and read! Free admission!

Yuyutsu Sharma was born at Nakodar, Punjab, and moved to Nepal at an early age. He has published eight poetry collections including, Annapurnas and Stains of Blood: Life Travels and Writing on a Page of Snow (Nirala Publications, New Delhi) and Space Cake, Amsterdam and Other Poems from Europe and America (Howling Dog Press). Yuyutsu’s poetry has been translated into German, French, Italian, Slovenian, Hebrew, Spanish and Dutch. Yuyutsu lives in Kathmandu where he edits Pratik, A Magazine of Contemporary Writing. Half the year, he travels all over the world to read his works but goes trekking in the Himalayas when back home.
Eli McCarthy is an Irish, Barcelona-based artist. Her medium is Anatomusic, a new "humanized" genre of intimate experimental electronica. In the same way as poetry describes a situation via words, Anatomusic allows the body to recount its experiences via the recording and digital processing of its movement/sound expression into musical notes, timbres and ambients. For a taste of what she does, check out
