The Peace Poets tap into the power of the cypher to create a unique musical experience that celebrates life in the oral traditions of the griots through Hip Hop.
The Peace Poets share music from their catalog including 2 albums engineered by Grammy Award recipient, Mikaelin “Blue” Bluespruce. The Peace Poets invite the party people to share in a high energy, lyrically sharp, politically analytical, and interactive performance.
The Peace Poets are artists, educators, and activists inspired to create art that reflect the stories of our lives, of experiences struggling with families for justice, and envisioning the world we know we deserve. We are grateful to join in conversation with you.
