Dana, a Haitian born poet & MC, was adopted and raised in Timmins/London, Ontario. Now an independent Vancouver based artist, Dana has a voice that naturally commands the attention of anyone in the room. His diverse lyricism springs from his unique upbringing & extensive spoken word poetry background.
Dana has made a multitude of collaboration music with people all over the world through the help of social media. Notably, he has several Hip-Hop mixtapes and a poetry chapbook, released to glowing audience response. Currently, Dana is working on expanding his artistic resume, focusing on building his own brand that makes use of all his skills.
As previously mentioned, Dana has an extensive background in spoken word poetry. In 2009, the London Poetry Slam became Dana's creative outlet.
