Ozay Moore

Ozay Moore

With 7 solo albums, 4 collaborative group releases, 10 years of touring the world as a certified emcee, and 15 years of releasing records, Ozay now finds his career meaning more to him at a local level than as a traveling artist. 
Lansing is fortunate to be his current location. It is now the home of All of the Above Creative — a collective dedicated to empowering communities through Hip Hop Culture — and also introducing hip hip into the school system in ways that reinforce curriculum.

But this workshop is all about fun, Jazz and movement, taught by a master in all of the above. Along side a Live band and DJ, Ozay will be taking JazzFest visitors on a musical journey highlighting Hip Hop Music’s Roots in Jazz. Don’t miss it!
