Bojah

Bojah

Bojah dwells at the edge where music and politics meet. Fusing elements of popular expression he became first known as the spoken soul hop messenger. He formed a band Bojah and the Insurrection in the aftermath of 9/11 and began touring the country after performing at rallies of 10’s of thousands in opposition to the US invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. Bojah founded and briefly ran one of the first open mics spots in Black Boston that featured live music in Dudley Square called Spoken Soul Hop Mondays. His Insurrection crew has featured some of the most talented musicians, singers, and MC’s in Boston. He has performed all over the US and in Cuba and Venezuela and shared the stage with many well known artists from Pharaoh Monche and Immortal Technique, to Nneka. In addition, Bojah has been a central leader in the movement against police brutality and racism in Greater Boston, helping to found the group Mass Action Against Police Brutality. The poetry jam is where it all began for Bojah, where he did his first feature. The rest is history.
