Intisar Abioto


Intisar Abioto is a writer, dancer, photographer  and life-literature-land explorer from Memphis TN. Intisar swears by the true life and love that can be found in fantasy, folklore, language, and movement. She makes her home in Portland, Oregon and her adventure everywhere.


Amenta Abioto

Songwriter, producer, and actor, Amenta Abioto is on the cutting edge of all that is musical, theatrical, and literary. Her music is boldly mystical and soul-fired, and her raw live performances invoke elements of both theatrical surprise and magic through ancient African diasporic sounds and stories. Weaved into syncopated rhythms and dichotomies of comedic proportions, Amenta surprises and tantalizes audiences with mind-bending ideas. She brings to the music scene funky academia while skipping vocally from soul-shaking gospel to smooth jazz and then onto hip-hop rhythms wrapped in West African beats.
