Union Station Waiting Room

As part of our long-standing partnership with Metro Art LA, we are thrilled to present legendary Los Angeles performance poet, Kamau Daáood. Co-founder of the World Stage Performance Gallery, Daáood has spent decades engaged with audiences locally, nationally, and internationally. The award winning, critically acclaimed poet's cascading images and syncopated flow have been likened to improvised music aimed at truth telling and he has been referred to as a word musician because of his electrifying performance style. He will be joined by an amazing group of youthful poets and musicians. Keyboardist Mark de Clive-Lowe is the musical director for this event.

Admission is free.
