Nnamdi Ogbonnaya
NNAMDI OGBONNAYA is a multi-instrumentalist composer, producer, song-writer, and performer in Chicago. He is a veteran of the Chicago DIY music community, having played a variety of primary roles in approximately 15 projects over the past decade. He toured extensively with those projects in the U.S.A., Mexico, Canada, and Europe. Nnamdi's solo music fuses hip-hop, math, pop, gospel, and jazz with a lyrical cadence that is rhythmically and phonemically complex. His songs often evoke a sense of satire that can be just as critical as it is humorous. Nnamdi's 2017 album DROOL received national and international recognition, and was featured on best album, song, and video lists on NPR, The Fader, Bandcamp, Paper Magazine, Timeout Chicago, Gold Flake Paint, and others. Apart from his solo music, Nnamdi remains active as a co-founder of Sooper Records and a drummer in the jazz-fusion band Monobody.
Sammus
Sammus
SAMMUS (Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo) is an Ithaca-raised, Philadelphia-based rap artist, producer, and PhD student in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University. Known as much for her rousing stage presence as she is for her prowess as a beatmaker and lyricist, Sammus has spent the past several years cultivating a strong following of activists, hip hop heads, punks, and self-identified nerds and geeks, among others. As noted by the Los Angeles Times, Sammus “has a gift for getting a message across.” Having recently made her Don Giovanni debut (while remaining tied to NuBlack Music Group), she is poised to cement herself as an artist who consistently thinks outside boxes and dances across lines (and does other neat things with geometrical figures).

In addition to managing a full-time music career, Enongo has spent the past eight years as a public-school and college level educator. After graduating from Cornell University in 2008 with a double BA in Sociology and Science & Technology Studies, she was accepted into the national teaching program Teach for America and placed in Houston Texas, where she taught elementary math and science between 2008 to 2010. In the fall semester of 2011 she returned to Cornell as a PhD candidate to pursue an interest a wide array of sound studies topics, including sound and gaming as well as the identity politics of community studios. As an academic in training and very-vocal feminist, Enongo has produced articles for publications such as Bitch, For Harriet, Sounding Out!, and The Mary Sue related to issues of race, hip-hop, gaming, and feminism.
