Oddissee and Jindi live in NYU Abu Dhabi

Don’t miss out on a fabulous night out to the tunes of Oddisee, Jindi and more in Abu Dhabi this month

Who doesn’t love a great concert, and you know it’s going to be especially amazing when it’s at the NYUAD Arts Center!

This time, gear up for a night of beats and rhythm like no other with Oddisee coming to town. The celebrated Sudanese-American conscious rapper is all set to rock the night out with DJ Unown.

Head to The Black Box on 28 May, with doors opening at 7.30pm for a night like no other.

Adding to the electrifying vibes is none other than the UAE’s favourite Afro-Sudanese singer-songwriter Jindi, opening the show and setting the stage for a great night. And of course, a brilliant warm-up DJ set by DJ Katt to get the vibes going!

Long celebrated as a deep-thinking emcee who delivers a masterclass in lyricism, Oddisee explores human ambition, posing the question: “How far are you willing to go, and why?”

Drawing from the stark inequity he experienced early in life, Oddisee tackles the human condition with unwavering conviction and candour, merging elements of jazz, funk, and go-go of his DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia) roots into his hip-hoprooted production. Instead of pursuing record deals and executives, Oddisee has taken the less-travelled path.

Streamlining elements of the industry early on, from single-handedly recording, producing, and mixing his music to steering his marketing strategy and tour runs.

A string of contemporary releases— Rock Creek Park (2011), The Beauty in All (2013), The Good Fight (2015), Alwasta (2016), and The Iceberg (2017)—headlining performances and tours with his 5-piece band, Good Compny, and streams in the hundred-millions have propelled Oddisee to international recognition and acclaim.

Get started with Jindi and the tunes of “AfroSudanese,” a subgenre of music that mixes afrobeat with Sudanese dialect and instrumentation.

It’s going to be amazing!
