MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST

Bomani is a poet, songwriter, producer, performer, and educator. Bomani uses his life experiences, mixed with his musical and poetic skills, to paint lyrical pictures of life as he sees it and the future as he envisions it. Bomani has had videos featured BET and MTV2, as well as hosting and performing everywhere from the Washington National Cathedral to the Fillmore in New York City.
Bomani Armah is “not a rapper, he’s a poet with a hip-hop style.” Bomani has been performing his brand of thought-provoking, head-nodding music on stages big and small for over 15 years for thousands of people of all ages, from schools, to churches, to nightclubs, to prisons.

For almost twenty years I have been teaching students about all types of subjects using Hip Hop as a teaching tool. From years of sitting down with teachers, artists, librarians, and administrators while pouring over the Common Core curriculum and dozens of lesson plans, I have developed songs, exercises, and graphic organizers that make any student feel confident in writing. This opens up a whole world of possibilities to keep students engaged and excited about the writing process.
