Simone Forti – Hippie Gospel Songs LP

Postmodern artist, dancer, choreographer, and writer Simone Forti originally wrote the Hippie Gospel Songs in 1969/70, around the time of the Woodstock Festival. She explains: "before coming to California where I started working and performing with Charlemagne Palestine and studying Tai Chi at the California Institute of the Arts, I had spent a year in Woodstock, New York, stoned in the woods.

Now with Charlemagne at the piano I ran in circles and figure eights." The seven songs on the record were recorded in 2012 during Forti's exhibition Sounding at The Box, Los Angeles.
