The Fierce Urgency of Now: Modern Troubadours, Poets, and Wordsmiths

As one of the most versatile innovators of his generation of interdisciplinary artists, Kokayi forges new ground yearning to create all things new and different. The Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, MC producer, and educator continues to make music that is often described as outside the box.

With his exploration of soundscapes, his work has ranged from the interpretation of social subtexts surrounding, race, religion, and patriotism and their effects on the human psyche. Kokayi has been a featured speaker and panelist for events presented by the State Department, Music Cities Conference, DCTV, and the Congressional Black Caucus.
