Otep Shamaya Updates Blurt Online Blog
Known not only for her music, but as one of today’s strongest, out-spoken and admirable woman, Otep has posted another capturing entry in her Blurt Online “Battle Ready” blog.
Click here for an insightful look on how and why Otep decided to play music and its importance not only in hers, but also in our lives today.
“Our music is formed from the marrow of creative intercourse. Art for art’s sake. Indeed. And just as Artaud taught: our music is a protest against the senseless constraints that reduce “culture” into an inconceivable Pantheon of humdrum, ineffectual lesser gods and puppets of sterility & puritanism. In antiquity, the Theatre was created as an outlet for all of life’s repressions and to proclaim to one and all that life’s intensity is still intact. Just as light is born from the burning flame, we must fight for the glow. But we warn you, this music, our message, and these lessons are not for every soul. Some will be devoured. Others reborn. Remember, do not slide into bed with the Devil unless you intend to fuck.”— Otep Shamaya
