Do we have a soul? And if not, can we at least still have soulful music? Baba Brinkman asks a lot of questions in The Rap Guide To Consciousness. In his Science Rap songs and the Off-Broadway show, he provides a ton of background information. Yet he still lets it up to you to answer.
This week’s featured artist Baba Brinkman has a rich discography. Since 2004, he has a total of 23 releases. On top of that, he also produced 10 theatre shows, wrote a book and several articles, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and a Master of Arts degree in Comparative Literature, and also studied human evolution and primatology. A productive man indeed!
In 2014 and 2015, our featured artist Baba Brinkman realized his Rap Guide to Religion. It’s one part rap concert, one part comedy and one part TED talk. Most of all, it’s science explained in a very modern and entertaining manner. It has already been the third of Baba’s Rap Guides, his fifth and newest is playing at the Soho Playhouse in New York during all of March and April.
We are proud to feature Baba Brinkman as our artist of the week. In over one and a half decades he has produced 19 albums. That is more than a record per year on average! Much more, with his thematic “literature” and “science rap” Baba has also done ten theatre shows over the time. During March and April, he is performing his newest program The Rap Guide to Consciousness Off-Broadway in New York City.
“Peer-reviewed rapper” Baba Brinkman’s latest show, Rap Guide to Consciousness, will soon begin a two month off-Broadway run in NYC, opening on March 1st at the Soho Playhouse!
Rap Guide to Consciousness was written and premiered earlier this year and had a smashing tour of the summer festival circuit. Now the science of not being unconscious will soon be presented in the city that never sleeps.
