About Poetic Pilgrimage
Poetic Pilgrimage is a female Hip Hop and Spoken Word duo who express the world as they see it through the art of rhyme. They are a rare act, being one of the few Muslim female outfits around and they bring a refreshing perspective to issues of identity, global politics and women’s issues inspired by their faith and legacy of their ancestors.
Born in Bristol to Jamaican parents they have been performing together as Poetic Pilgrimage for over 10 years creating music that fuses their love of Hip Hop with their Caribbean roots intertwined with their love of Jazz, World Music, Electro Soul and more, providing a colorful landscape to their words. They are also profound Spoken Word artists so at times they require no backdrop at all to share their powerful messages of peace, unity and freedom. The world has much to learn from the lyrics of these two women.
Poetic Pilgrimage have performed across the UK, US and Europe as well as South Africa and Morocco. They have shared stages with Talib Kweli, K-naan, Brother Ali, Bahamadia, Mutabaruka, Mr Lif and more.
