LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, born in 1970 in New York, USA, is a DJane and poet who draws on myths, mixing more than a dozen languages including Maori, Hindi, Urdu und Swahili into an urban, Babylonian song in her texts. Her book TwERK (the title refers to the high art of arse shaking in Hip-Hop) is about reanimated eels and will o’ the wisp baby mosquitoes and the mystical hips of Michael Jackson, who was crowned ‘King Sani’ on the Ivory Coast. Her poem about Suri Cruise makes surprising connections between Björk, alpacas and Scientology.

Even before the publication of her book TwERK gained so much attention, LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs had already made a name for herself with numerous chapbooks including Ichi-Ban, Ni-Ban and Manuel is destroying my bathroom. She has also released the album Televisión.
