(I)sland T(rap): The Epic Remixology of the Odyssey is a tour-de-force, solo-soul journey mash-up of lyrical and mythical proportions; This Original Hip-Hop dramedy adaptation - inspired in part by Homer's Odyssey, Walt Disney's The Jungle Book, Romare Bearden's collage art, and Joseph Campbell's Power of Myth - tracks Black Ulysses as he sets off on an epic voyage from a hostile society mired in gun violence, racial oppression and systematic discrimination. Through an interwoven narrative of live music (ukele), poetry (spoken word), and animal characterizations, Black Ulysses is empowered to discover his true artistic home where his raps can effortlessly flow. With the aid of a wise old lobster and a brave panther mama, his epic journey takes him through the straits of self doubt and self worth as he seeks, through re-engagement with community, to find and reveal his authentic self.
