Serengeti’s atypical childhood involved partaking in public protests at the tender age of five, under the tutelage of his politically active mother. Young Serengeti was often shuttled between his mother’s impoverished urban community and his father’s suburban paradise, leading him to uncover two contrasting worlds and the racial, economic and political ties that separated them. Over time, Serengeti learned to embrace his cultural diversity and celebrate its varying influences through the universal language of music. As a result, rock instruments have been merged with Hip Hop elements, creating a seamless sound drenched in passion and articulate rebellion.
He collaborated with Polyphonic as Serengeti & Polyphonic, with Hi-Fidel on two Friday Night albums, with Renee Louise Carafice and Tony Trimm as Yoome.
In 2011 Serengeti and Sicker Man released a noise-electro-techno-hiphop record as shtaad.
In 2012 Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux and Serengeti collaborated on Beak & Claw as s / s / s.
Performing with unbridled energy, Serengeti feels compelled to create. Aiming to exhibit the unique intellect and preeminent talent of the oppressed, he sees himself as more than an artist. He is the physical embodiment of a misunderstood generation struggling for a voice.
