Tennessee-based alternative hip-hop artist, Imani, is a musical force to be reckoned with. Vibrant and bright, Imani is a free-spirited artist from the South who seamlessly blends playful lyricism with spirited storytelling. She honed her craft for more than a decade. Imani's diverse musical experiences, from being trained as a classical pianist to performing in a Led Zeppelin cover band, has led to an amalgam of genres carefully woven into a powerful blend of hip-hop, soul, funk, and RnB.
