Who is this guy? What does he do? A lot some say. Too much others say. Not enough he might say. Born and raised in Oakland, CA, the Towns social and political make up made him. Rashidi Omari, Shidi O, The Bandit King. Trail blazing most of the time, walking the beaten path some, Rashidi Omari has learned the art of alchemy. Mixing the elements around him to create something different. Every action made has multiple levels of communication and interpretation. Purposefully. Whatever the medium, dance, theatre, teaching, music, he encourages and influences his audience to think about things they may not think about or want to think about. Not overbearing but inviting. Be prepared for a ride that will push you past the boundaries of your comfort zone while enjoying it the whole way. Welcome.
