Two Warriors
Mark Habana and Harry Ramos

Open mic. Poetry. Found words. Prose. Drama. Music by DJ Justin Woo. Please arrive early to sign up for the open mic.

Two Warriors is a New-York based poetry duo that found life at the Asian American Writers’ Workshop in 2002 by bringing together stories of love, peace, family, tribute and tradition in their writing. In an effort to break down barriers and provide a sense of home for everyone through their performances, Mark and Harry aim to involve the crowd, interact with the audience, interpret stories, infuse emotion, and inspire hearts and minds. They have been blessed to perform in venues throughout the NYC tri-state area, including Five Points, Galapagos Art Space, Urban Juke Joint, Wazzup Cafe, Charlie’s Den, Tasty Coco, Je Bon Lounge and Fusion Ti, as well as locations in Massachusetts, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Hawaii.

Justin Woo loves DJing and primarily mixes house and trance. He is the resident DJ for the Poetic Voices reading at the Iron Monkey in Jersey City, NJ, as well as mobile DJing events. Justin also specializes in collaborative, political, cross-disciplinary performance. He has co-written, co-directed, and performed in four spoken word theatre productions that have debuted in New York City and Rutgers University. He is also a teaching artist for SlamChops, an educational poetry program for youth at the Bowery Poetry Club. His most recent project, New Street Poets, appeared as part of the 2007 New York Fringe Festival.
