COMING TO OUR STAGE, A NEW NEWARK NATIVE!
Raised in Dallas, TX, reborn in Washington, DC, and debuting on her first nationwide tour: Akasha has been a poet since she first learned to form phrases on the page. Inspired by poets ranging from Emily Dickinson to Nikki Giovanni, this wordsmith combines traditional poetry mechanics with celestial imagery and percussive cadence.
