Album Notes
Imani is a singer and songwriter from Hawai'i. Born on O'ahu and raised between Maui and Kenya, East Africa, Imani's style fuses Reggae, R&B, Soul, and Bossa Nova. A poetic lyricist and sultry vocalist, Imani plays the guitar and ukulele, delivering a compelling balance of sass and vulnerability.

A former professional performance poet and radio presenter, Imani's work has taken her to perform and conduct workshops in countries around the world including Thailand, Brazil, Canada, England, South Africa, Spain, and The United States. She has performed before students, politicians, presidents, United Nations delegates, and ambassadors, and has received standing ovations from diverse crowds across the globe. She has shared stages with the likes of Tony Award winning Def Poet, Tamika Harper, Roger Bonair Agard, Shailja Patel, and Guante, and has mentored hundreds of young upcoming spoken word performers. She is the co-founder of Slam Africa, a platform providing performance, workshop, and mentorship opportunities for young poets in Kenya. Imani is the author and recording artist of two poetry books and three Spoken Word/World Music albums, Morning Rain (2006), Pearls (2009), and Talking Story (2012).

Currently working with a number of talented musicians in Florida, Imani's sound has evolved from spoken word into a soulful blend of vocals, poetic lyrics, and ukulele and guitar rhythms. Singing in English, Kiswahili, Portuguese, and Hawaiian, Imani delivers engaging performances with a cultural edge. Between live performances with her band, and a full length music album in the works for Summer 2014 release, Imani is getting herself ready to hit some big stages for years to come.
