Word of South

Ramona King, Griot/Storyteller & Zack Freeman, Beatbox Artist

Collaborating their own unique form of spoken word and music performance.
Ramona King has been performing nationally for over 25 years. She conducts workshops and gives presentations on embracing change and challenges for empowered living. She performs folklore and original stories in movement, dance and song, creating an atmosphere of playful wisdom which in turn stimulates imagination, literary skills and logic. 

Zack Freeman is an accomplished beatboxer who merges hip-hop, folk, a cappella and electronica. He records his voice on an electronic device, creating drum, bass and harmony tracks. He then sings live over the sounds. He prefers performing at elementary schools to the club circuit, spreading a message of peace, community and social justice.
