Warner N. Sabio, Sr. Performs Jazz Poetry and Spoken Word

Warner N. Sabio, Sr. will present a jazz poetry/spoken word performance from the stage of Bellefield Hall Auditorium. His approach to this performance will encompass various rhythms and is heavily influenced by music from the early hip-hop era and the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and ’70s.

Poet and percussionist Warner N. Sabio Sr. worked as a print journalist for over 15 years before coming to the University of Pittsburgh to pursue a PhD in Jazz Studies. He previously attended Penn State, where he received a BA degree in African and African American Studies. In 2019, he earned an MA degree in History from Pitt. As an evolving scholar on the history of the African diaspora, Warner’s academic interests include examining Afro-diasporic migration and its role in the formation of jazz, hip-hop, and popular music, in general.
