Vocalist, Spoken Word Artist, Jazz Presenter, Jazz Historian
Tell us a little about your background...
Vocalist, poet, and teaching artist, Eboniramm was born in Manning, SC, a descendant of the gullah culture from the low country. Eboni’s written word reads like the robust sounds that emanate from her voice. A mother, a twin daughter, she currently lives in Columbia, SC where she conducts jazz and poetry workshops in schools and libraries for our youth. Through song and spoken word, her quest to bring forth the inherent wisdom buried in us all is furthered as she seeks pathways of expression and reflection. Founder of Main Street Jazz, Eboniramm cultivates community enlightenment through the art of jazz.
Her most recent endeavors include a teaching residency with VSA arts of SC wherein she conducted jazz appreciation workshops with consumers of United Cerebral Palsy of SC and GA in collaboration with the Columbia Music Festival Association and secondly, the 2009 release of her seminal jazz CD entitled "The Look of Love."
Highlights of her career include attending the Master Classes of Grammy award-winning vocalists and producers Joe Sample in 2008 and Rachelle Ferrell in 2009. Eboni continues to perform at various venues throughout the southeast USA and welcomes the opportunity to see the world through the eyes of jazz.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
