Biography

Born in O’ahu, Hawai'i and raised from the age of 11 between the islands and Nairobi, Kenya, multidisciplinary artist Imani Woomera is in a category of her own. A singer-songwriter, and spoken word poet, Imani shares her life with the use of infectious rhythm and imagery, captivating and empowering audiences throughout the world.

Sultry yet powerful, this unique artist’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 politicians, presidents, United Nations delegates, and ambassadors, and has received standing ovations from diverse crowds across the globe.

Imani 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 on the African continent. 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).

Now residing in the U.S, Imani's sound is evolving from spoken word into what she dubs as Island Girl Music. A soulful acoustic blend of vocals, poetic lyrics, and ukulele & guitar rhythms, Imani ignites a stage as both a headliner and an opening act.
