An Evening of Hip-hop & Arabic Poetry w/ Omar Offendum
presented with Arab Film and Media Institute

From the jasmine tree-lined courtyards of Nizar Qabbani's Damascene homes to the flooded riverbanks of Langston Hughes' Harlem Renaissance poems, Kennedy Center Citizen Artist (2018-2019) OMAR OFFENDUM - accompanied by oud (Middle Eastern lute) virtuoso Ronnie Malley, percussionists and a DJ – will deliver a one-of-a-kind performance that bridges the ancient oral and musical traditions of the Middle East and North Africa with contemporary hip-hop and spoken word. For this intimate event, audiences will be seated on the Ford stage with the artists.

This event is part of IGNITE @ the FORD!, a series presented by the Ford Theatre Foundation comprised of world-renowned contemporary artists whose work is thought-provoking and reflects the world in which we live. Supported by Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl.
