Spoken word artist Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai at Museum of Chinese in America

In love? Brokenhearted? Locked eyes with someone on the Q train? Tell us your love stories! We promise we’ll keep it a secret. In celebration of Valentine’s Day and the Lunar New Year, both of which fall on February 14th, MOCA will host an open mic emceed by and featuring Kelly Tsai.

Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai is a Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based Chinese Taiwanese American spoken word artist who fights for cultural pride and survival through how she spits and how she lives. She has been featured at over 300 performances worldwide at venues including the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, the House of Blues, the Apollo Theater, Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and three seasons of the award-winning “Russell Simmons Presents HBO Def Poetry.” Tsai has shared stages with Mos Def, KRS-One, Sonia Sanchez, Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu, Amiri Baraka, and many more.
