Bio

Baub (pronounced: Bawb) Bidon is a multi talented Poet, Actor, Writer, Playwright, Visual Artist...etc. His body of work chronicles the afro-urban lifestyle. He echo’s the outcry of men, women, and children, stemming from abuse, rape, injustice, and inequalities of the judicial, education, and employment system; Baub’s poetry is the voice of the unheard catapulted to ears of those who refuse to listen.
As in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Baub’s work conceptualizes the idea of a better tomorrow, and a brighter day. His message is delivered through the voice and spirit of Hip Hop, Jazz, and Blues; in a poetic/ storytelling art form—with such titles: Ghetto Jazz, Visiting the Blues, and She Called It. Baub’s work is illustrated to the likes of Gil Scott Heron of The Last Poets, and James Baldwin.
Baub’s worked has appeared in the anthologies Echo’s from Elm Street/Spokenword on an empty canvas, and Poets On the Road to Peace (Yale-Peabody Press). He has authored Aglimpse/Spokenword in back pockets (collected Poems), and Aglimpse (CD). As a member of the Blackout Arts Collective, Baub Bidon adds playwright to his repertoire for the production of What it iz/The Spokenwordical; a Hip Hop, Spokenword adaptation of the 1979’s musical, and film—The Wiz. “If New Haven’s hip-hop community has a Renaissance man, it just might be Baub Bidon;” says Jim Shelton of the New Haven Register.
