About the Artist:

Baraka Blue is a recording artist, poet, emcee, and educator born in Seattle, Washington and based in Oakland, California. He is known for his unique blend of Hip-Hop and Spoken Word poetry with the Islamic tradition of mystical poetry exemplified by Rumi, Hafiz, and others. He has released two studio albums and two books of poetry, including his newly released 'Reedbed Diaspora'. Part of Muslim musicians collective Remarkable Current, he has performed across North America and internationally, in countries such as Turkey, The Gambia, Senegal, Egypt, Morocco, and the U.K. His first album, 'Sound Heart' was released in 2010.

In addition to his art, Baraka Blue has a BA in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations and a Masters Degree in Islamic Studies with a focus on spiritual psychology. He teaches at Ta'leef Collective, an organization focused on da'wah and serving converts and those newly committed to Islam. Baraka Blue is sought-out for embodying a rare combination of artist, academic, and student of sacred knowledge. He stands as a unique bridge between the traditions of East and West, ancient and modern and is a cultural ambassador, touring with Remarkable Current's Hip Hop Ambassadors program.
