Spoken Word and Rap Masterclass Series

Are you an aspiring poet, spoken-word artist or rapper aged 13-18? If so, don’t miss this amazing opportunity to develop your craft and career in a series of masterclasses delivered by Kenny Baraka.

 

From his upbringing in Brooklyn, New York, where he was a formative part of the 90’s Golden Era NYC hip-hop scene to his international recording and touring career with the likes of Tribe Called Quest, Supernatural, Omar, De La Soul, Rodney P, Burning Spear, Common Sense and KISS FM’s DJ Shortee Blitz, Kenny has been making and performing music across the world.

 

Residing in the UK for over 10 years, he has combined his musical background with his BA in World History & Literature, his MA studies in Community Organising and many years of teaching experience to work with and inspire young people from across the UK.
