Raised between the islands of Fogo with his grandparents, and Santiago, with his parents and siblings, Shokanti, spent his childhood in contrasting environments that instilled the diverse artistic roots of Cabo Verde.Shokanti has been invited as a lecturer/performer for Harvard University, Berklee College of Music, Umass Boston, Umass Dartmouth, Brandeis University, Bridgewater University, John C. Smith College amongst many other institutions and venues.
