Baba Brinkman is a Canadian rap artist and award-winning playwright. He is best known for his award-winning hip-hop theatre shows, including The Rap Guide to Evolution and The Canterbury Tales Remixed, which interpret the works of Darwin and Chaucer for a modern audience. Brinkman is a recipient of the National Center for Science Education’s “Friend of Darwin Award” which recognizes his efforts to improve the public understanding of evolutionary biology. The Rap Guide to Evolution won a Scotsman Fringe First Award and a Drama Desk Award nomination, and was featured on US national TV on The Rachel Maddow Show and at the Seattle Science Festival opening for Stephen Hawking. In 2011, the Wellcome Trust helped Brinkman launch online music videos and a DVD of his album for use in teaching evolutionary concepts in school.
