Description

Grades k-2

Baba Bomani’s k-2 assembly is a solo interactive Hip Hop performance, featuring music videos, multi-media presentations, call and response, as well as rhythmic movement with the audience. Students will rap along to original, professionally released music by Baba Bomani. Baba Bomani also tells the story of Frederick Douglass, as well as the story of the evolution of American music starting with the continent of Africa, moving on to Scott Joplin and ragtime music of the 1920’s, then culminating in today’s hip hop music.

Grades 3-8

This upbeat and active multi-media assembly explores the fun process of hip hop song writing while comparing the art form to the practical skill of essay writing.  Using positive music videos and song lyrics, Bomani introduces students to his special “Bomani Armah wRiting System” (B.A.R.S), and they are encouraged to find and create art that reflects their lives and aspirations.  Baba Bomani also tells the story of Frederick Douglass, as well as the story of the evolution of American music starting with the continent of Africa, moving on to Scott Joplin and ragtime music of the 1920’s, then culminating in today’s hip hop music. Positive, motivating, and challenging!
