Tantra-zawadi is comprehensive in her exploration, with an awareness 360 and beyond. Tantra addresses the world and its poetry — poet to poet, enjoined in the present, evolving, through media, traditional and new, in print and performance, on the internet and off: visualizing word for the page, spoken on stage or before the camera, shaped to accompaniment by music — never diminished. Hers is a responsibility taken on behalf of others. Whom Brooklyn began enlivens a world; Tantra the artist is now sought and received.
She permits neither the page’s edge nor the stage, the end of the music or the script to prescribe her method, limit her manner of engagement or define her role. Conjunction, for Tantra, succeeds through sum of dramatic parts. “Girl: A Choreospective” augmented The Numeral Thr3ee Off Broadway, “Soldier Blues,” movement with words and music, further rite, to A Night of Three Goddesses at New York’s Lincoln Center. “The Fear,” contributed to An Evolution of Reinvention, “Stolen Dreams,” like “Leaving My Apartment and Other Urban Adventures” — songs, too, inspiriting the Von Duvois Dance Collective — shared meaning in context of collaboration and combined effect. Her performances, at large, grace diverse stages, enthrall standing room in South Africa, London, Berlin, local museums, audiences on radio and TV. For bookings, media, interviews contact

Spoken Word Artist and Musician, Camille Veronica is a native of Flint, MI  and currently lives in South Florida where she continues to explore what she views as the necessary connection between life and the arts.

She began writing at an early age and started seriously focusing on poetry in 1990.  Eventually the pull to perform called her and she found her spoken word voice.  She approaches poetry from a storyteller point of view.  She has performed in various venues in the U.S., England, and Kenya.  Camille Veronica has not only performed spoken word but also organized artists to share their talent in non-traditional venues.  She self-published Potluck Poetry, performed and placed in Poetry Slams in South Florida and toured with an ensemble of poets for the local original production of Female. Camille Veronica’s debut of Loverwants  in 2013 on the Cyberjamz Records label introduced her artistry to House/Soulful House music lovers.

Camille Veronica's writing is an extension of her music.  An accomplished vocal artist, she studies, performs and appreciates a variety of music genres.  She is degreed  in music education and always finds ways to share and teach the beauty of music.  She feels music sets tone, conveys the needs of a people and should catalogue the culture and climate of society.  

She is a musician  at  Norland United Methodist Church in Miami Gardens, FL.  There she leads the praise and worship band and directs the Children and Youth choirs. She teaches piano, chorus and spoken word at Jose de Diego Middle School.  Camille Veronica is also a member of the Miami Oratorial Society.
