ABOUT ME

My name is Aman (pronounced uh-mun), and I’m an Indian-American spoken word poet from Artesia, CA. As the child of immigrants, I’m untraditional in my approach. If there’s a rule, I break it. If there’s a boundary, I push. If there’s a pen or a microphone in front of me, I am my most powerful and unapologetic self. I graduated from UCLA in 2014 with a degree in Creative Writing. Since then, I have immersed myself into written and performance poetry, competing in venues and national slams across the country. 

I was a member of UCLA’s first slam team, and the 2016 Hollywood (DPL) Slam Team, both of which have been catalysts in building my artist career. My work has been featured on All Def PoetryThe Huffington Post, Vibe, and Bustle. I work to inspire risk-taking, unlearning, and freedom of expression. Whether it's a classroom workshop, an intimate crowd of 20 people in a coffee house, or thousands of students at a University, I give all of myself to every performance, and every person I connect with. 

If you’re interested in booking me or collaborating, please fill out the contact and/or booking form, and I will be in touch.

Stolen Thing + Dripping Love
15.00

In my debut collection of poetry, produced by A Name Brand Co., I explore themes of love, identity, and culture. Both books go hand in hand (pun intended), and serve as reflections of my healing through written word.

Stolen Thing
10.00

Stolen Thing is the telling of my hyphenated identity. Each poem highlights ways in which white supremacy, anti-blackness, or xenophobia present themselves in the simplest forms — a concert in Hollywood, a Fourth of July celebration, conversations with my mother, and more.

Dripping Love
10.00

Dripping Love is the continual exploration of a romantic relationship, unfolding the ways in which I rise and fall in love. This is some of my rawest and most vulnerable work, never before shared on social media.
