Performing 'Banga'

Patti Smith dropped by Letterman recently, delivering a powerful performance of 'Banga'.

Patti Smith is a true icon. A wonderful artist, her material fuelled the punk revolution but sought inspiration from earlier movements.

Still an engaging, thought provoking songwriter, Patti Smith recently announced her return. New album 'Banga' is an impassioned effort, mixing original material with an emotional rendition of 'After The Gold Rush'.

Dropping by Letterman recently, Patti Smith gave a rare televised performance. Picking out title cut 'Banga' the artist proved that her legendary stage presence remains as pivotal, as magnetic as ever.
