Akua Naru is one of my personal favorite poets out there doing her absolute thing! She creates music that clings to the soul. Exercising her ability to use hip hop as a poetic force Akua reintroduces Black art in a new light. Combining both jazz and spoken word she creates a sound that rides a wave of a old and new hip hop giving Black music a progressive platform to stand on.
If love had a sound Akua Naru and her band would be the ones to play it. Take a listen to my favorite piece, "Poetry: How Does it Feel Now???".
