Zakiyyah is an artist-activist who utilizes music and visual media to explore themes that centralize marginalized communities. She’s had the pleasure of bringing these sounds to numerous audiences from the House of Blues to more recently, the United Nations. Zakiyyah is perhaps most known for Hip-Hopera, fusing her classical training with her Hip-Hop foundation. Her upcoming album, African Import, provides a window into both the beauty and complexity of the black diaspora, and the significance of its consumption by mainstream society. @zakiyyah_official
