Kamau Abayomi

Integral Grounding


Kamau Abayomi is the embodiment of the term “Artist”. For the last 25 years, Kamau has lived, performed and taught as multi-disciplinarian, who shares his spoken word poetry, djing, music, choreography, rap artistry, literary works, expanded spiritual perspective and workshop sessions with the intention of inspiring and activating others into the awareness of their own innate power.

During his journey, Kamau has been named ‘Best Poet’ in the Oakland, California poetry slam finals. He is the 2-time winner of the International Ubud Writers & Readers Festival Poetry Slam in Bali, Indonesia. He has been a guest artist at the World Social Forum in Mumbai, India and has conducted poetry and art and activism workshops in Japan, Singapore, Sri Lanka and West Papua. Recently, Kamau has been the featured poet on two chart topping afro-house singles released by 2017’s top Afrohouse label, MoBlack Records.

Present in all of Kamau’s work is a deep love, respect and honor of the unique, mind, body, spirit complexity of being, with the intention to expand awareness and shift perceptions, while simultaneously being grounded. There is a clear and rich esoteric component in his being and expression, his art delves deep into dialogue on multi-dimensionality, spiritual awareness, energy dynamics, nature, connection and soul purpose.

Kamau is currently one of the regular DJs playing at The Yoga Barn’s ecstatic dance in Ubud and he has also played at premiere ecstatic dance events across USA and Asia. Kamau holds the rare ability to demystify the mystical life and mystify the ordinary life, blurring the lines many societies have drawn between them.

A presenter at BaliSpirit Festival since the early years, this year Kamau can be found DJing for dance classes, performing on the CoCo Love Stage and also will be co-facilitating a workshop called Integral Grounding with Melvin Hart.
