Imani Rhema founded the Soul Food Poetry Cafe in 2007 with this vision in mind: To host a quality spoken word event in Nashville, providing a platform for seasoned performance artists as well as up and coming poets. Soul Food Poetry Cafe has hosted the range: from award-winning artists, HBO Def Poets, to artists bursting out on the scene for the first time. She remarks, "We are the spot artists look for when traveling to Nashville for spoken word".
An award-winning poet herself, Imani has hosted the Cafe in several venues since its inception. Soul Food Poetry Cafe's host venue has been the exclusive City Winery Nashville for the last two years.
Imani Rhema will be releasing her CD, My Sister's Keeper, in the near future.
