Decora is a hip hop artist, DJ, emcee, producer, and performance poet based in New York’s Hudson Valley. He is best known for his unique brand of composition, which unites a folk music ethos with hip hop and social change through community action – using rhythm and words to be both formally innovative and consciously progressive. His 2015 album, “Bread and Oats” led to a successful year performing across the U.S. and Canada, headlining a festival in the Pacific Northwest, interviewing for MTV and NPR, and receiving rave reviews by the influential media publications such as Chronogram, Upstater and AfroPunk. Riding on the wave from last year, 2016 is set to be even more successful. His 2016 tour is already underway and his new EP entitled, “Beyond Belief” will be released later this year.
