Based in Brooklyn, NY with a dedication to the whole planet, Climbing PoeTree harnesses creativity as the antidote to destruction through their award-winning spoken word, boundary-breaking music, and multimedia hip hop theater. Co-creators Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman have independently organized more than 30 national and international tours, taking their work from South Africa to Cuba, the UK to Mexico, and throughout the U.S. including 11,000 miles toured on a bus converted to run on recycled vegetable oil.

Climbing PoeTree has stirred crowds at diverse venues from the Brooklyn Academy of Music to the United Nations, Harvard University to Rikers Island Prison. They have been featured alongside powerhouses such as Alicia Keys, Janelle Monáe, Erykah Badu, Little Dragon, Talib Kweli, Maxwell, Madonna, Goapele, Rising Appalachia, T.I., Dead Prez, and Angela Davis, who writes:

“Each time I have the pleasure of attending a performance by Climbing PoeTree, I feel enriched, renewed, and inspired. Alixa and Naima insist that poetry can change the world—and it is true that the urgency, power and beauty of their words impel us to keep striving for the radical futures toward which they gesture.”

Climbing PoeTree’s art is a tool to expose injustice, and make a better future visible, immediate, and irresistible.

INTRINSIC Climbing PoeTree prepares to release a new collection of 17 rebel-rousing anthems, bilingual ballads, and unconventional love songs in March 2017. Alixa and Naima brought together a team of 33 world-class musicians, vocalists, and producers led by the legendary Toshi Reagon to translate their brazen lyricism into soulful compositions bridging electronic music and live instrumentation, combining hip-hop, rock, blues, folk, & Afro-Latin beats.

INTRINSIC explores the inescapable network of mutuality that binds our existence through the ricochet of oppression and the reciprocity of liberation, reminding us all that we belong to each other. The INTRINSIC tour will feature this new body of work with a live all-female band, bringing their evolutionary message and irresistible flavor to cities across the nation.
