NLE’s Youth Action Council welcomed multimedia artist Yako as part of NLE NYCapsule, where he showed the youth how culinary ingredients — such as turmeric — can be used in lieu of traditional materials to create art. A multi-instrumentalist, beat maker/ producer, human beatboxer, and visual artist, Yako has travelled the world both as a student and educator. He holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Goddard College’s Interdisciplinary Arts program. In addition, Yako has composed music and visuals for theater performances, co-curated large scale art exhibitions, and co-founded the Hip Hop/ Spoken Word collective SOUL INSCRIBED.
