I don’t care, I like Ari’s Hair.
I spent the past holiday weekend making merry with a bunch of friends up in the Sierra Nevada mountains at the annual High Sierra Music Festival. One of my highlights from the festival was meeting Ari the MC, an uber talented spoken word artist and MC. I stopped him for a chat after hearing his beautiful recitation of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech (the perfect way to kick off our Independence Day celebrations!).
Aside from being a featured artist at the festival, Ari’s rhyming talents were also available for a la carte ordering from his mobile musical menu, which offered up 31 Flavors (songs) about everything from “Wisdom” to “Bob Marley” to “Grandma” to “Hair”.
Naturally, I selected “Hair” and Ari blew us away with the rhymes he laid down in an acoustic flow. Luckily (!), I was able to catch it all on video to share with you! (**Warning** a couple of the rhymes are of a bit of an adult nature….)
In addition to “Hair”, we also got to hear a song about The Beatles, veganism, and soccer, err…futbol and then Reema hooked me up with beautiful henna art and an herbal facial mist from her Spa Wagon. Long story short, I (and my entire camp of about 40 people) was totally impressed with Ari, his eloquent MC skills, the fact that he shares in my celebration of all types of hair, and his beautiful head of coils!
