16 years. Jamaica House, to Sweet Fingers, and now Queen Sheba. 1704 broadway.

Mahogany URBAN Poetry Series has been at the forefront of the poetry scene in Northern California for the past 16 years. There is NO other known urban venue that has existed as long. NO other venue that has catered consistently to the urban market, the youth, and both local and international poets, comedians, singers, etc.

Every year, we celebrate another accomplishment. Last year we packed out the Guild Theater, and had an afterparty at The Brickhouse.

This year we are bringing the phenomenal and legendary poet GEORGIA ME to Sacramento to celebrate with us.

Georgia Me was featured on Def Poetry 7 times. She has featured on Verses and Flow, has won an Emmy,Tony award, has been featured all over the United States, and even has her own festival in Atlanta named after her. http://www.georgiamethepoet.com/

We also have Taalam Acey http://taalamacey.com/, ZFG, Luke Tailor, Kelly and the Girl Nexxt Door,Hurrikane, Ifamodupe, Cleo Cartel, Coon the Poet,NSAA, Heather Christian and live music with Zyah Belle on the ticket.

DJ Rock Bottom will be on the wheels of steel afterwards for the after party..

This will be the BEST show Sacramento has seen in years!!

Feature Poet Epiphany Castro:

Epiphany Castro—born and raised in Berkeley, California with soulful roots traceable to New Orleans, Louisiana; perhaps this is where it starts—at the roots. Epiphany began singing and involved herself in performance arts during her fledgling years, which also was the beginning of her writing experience with shorts and poems. In her adulthood she studied theatre arts at San Francisco State and began singing in local bands in the bay area. Expanding her limbs she went international, traveling across Europe. Performing at various venues and learning new forms of expression before she returned to the Unite States to resume her activities in art and career. “My eyes speak volumes of truth, my voice speaks for the voiceless —for those who are misunderstood” It was in recent years when Epiphany heeded the call to poetry, which seemed to be a natural fit as she appeared at various poetry speakeasies and open mics; she published her first volume of poetry titled Everything and Nothing, and later began exercising her love for vocalizing once more, which led to the production of several albums. Besides her personal milestones, Epiphany became the household branding for what is globally known as Epiphany’s House: the place where artists meet; it is at this online podcast that she finds herself most comfortable and instrumental in the promotion of her affinity for both music and poetry.

Feature Poet Andru Defeye:

Known for his unorthodox blend of poetry and Hip Hop, Andru Defeye is the raw and unfiltered voice of the West Coast’s guerrilla art renaissance. Creator and founder of the Zero Forbidden Goals performance art crew, Defeye and ZFG have worked to make language arts more accessible to the public and shift the backdrop of performance arts in Sacramento from galleries and stages to parking garages and street corners. Sacramento’s original pop-up poetry event, ZFG’s #TheMostOpenMicInTheCity is (quite literally) an unpredictable language arts free-for-all that springs itself on unsuspecting crowds. From museum ballrooms to light rail commutes, Andru Defeye and ZFG are introducing the art of performative interventions to Northern California one pop-up at a time.

From street corner slams to festival stages, as a performer Andru Defeye has worked with acts like GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Atmosphere, Aceyalone, Blackalicious, Andre Nickatina, Pete Rock, and more earning spots at TBD Fest, Global Local, and Concerts in the Park in the last year.

Get a preview of Andru Defeye’s upcoming album, “Villain” at http://Soundcloud.com/Defeye.
