About Me
Monstah Black, is a self-shaped Messiah of the Funk, bringing his Virginia roots and
worldly explorations to bear on everything from class consciousness to gender politics.
His wildly multidimensional, multi-genre works of art employ the disciplines of musical
composition, choreography and theater in seamless harmony.

Monstah has always been inspired by all things progressive, radical, sexy and humorous.
