About the Feature
YANI AND THE PEACE PEOPLE
Her name means “Peace” yet her sound cuts through the silence luring her audiences into a rhythmical space that is freeing. In this space, bodies rock metrically, hands wave as if the her beats have read their palms and heads bob acquiescently. Everything flows when she flows. Her name is YaNi. She is a poet with a message. She is a rapper with a cause. She is a lyricist with a song.
Born Iyana Ife Jendeyea Davis, which means, “beautiful flower of fruits and blessings, we give thanks to God for the beloved one”, in St. Albans, NY, YaNi has picked the pockets of the map dropping sound jewels in the hearts and minds of diverse audiences. Her music has a universal appeal. Its content is inviting and non-prejudicial...a soundtrack for families and communities.Gigging in schools and press-heavy community events alongside noted names in the literary and music world such as Dr. Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Pearl Cleage and opening for headliners like Janelle Monae, J. Holiday, and Dwele has aligned YaNi with industry leaders that continue to propel her brand.
In March 2012, YaNi released "The Storyteller" and the response has been incredible.
