About Pedro el Poeta

Originally from Nicaragua, Pedro was born with poetry and rhyme laced into his bloodstream. He began reading, reciting and writing poetry from a very young age. After a harrowing journey to the US to escape civil war when he was only seven years old, Pedro grew up in the Washington D.C. area and spent most of his life on stage. Learning English by listening to Rap and Hip-Hop artists, like Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Tupac and others set the foundation for his seemingly effortless rhythmical freestyle future. Pedro has a long history of spoken word poetry accomplishments for his age, including opening for Def Poetry Jam and other ticket mastered events in Tampa Bay Florida. He seamlessly made his way
into a more Hip-Hop-focused career in 2008. El Poeta has since shared his quick wit and raw skills for theatres, radio stations, art galleries, coffee shops, bars and clubs both nationally and internationally. Pedro currently resides with his family in St. Petersburg, Florida.
