Navid Najafi aka Illnomadic

Navid Najafi aka Illnomadic is a founding member of  the local conscious rap collective, the Super Groupers, and a two-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Hip Hop Album of the Year award winner. Born in Tehran Iran, Najafi found home when he migrated to Hawai‘i after high school to attend the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Aligned with the core Hawaiian values of Aloha 'Āina, Najafi has become an active ally, artist, organizer, teacher, mentor and volunteer in the community. As a native Farsi speaker, English is his second language but he discovered that music and art often operate as a universal second language. His style is activated hip hop with lyrics that explore themes of migration, culture, solidarity and home. Navid is currently the Learning Programs Coordinator at the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture and Design in Honolulu. He is also the co-founder and an administrator/artist for Soundshop, a hip hop education workshop series at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
