An Evening of Hip-Hop & Arabic Poetry with Omar Offendum
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, there will be seating in the front portion of the amphitheatre, as well as on the stage. 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.
