The first open mic session kicks off on 28 October.
Dorian Paul Rodgers, Founder of Rooftop Rhythms, has slammed this Abu Dhabi staple into the realms of the community and once again, now is your chance to ‘speak your truth from the roof!’ as Rooftop Rhythms heads to the roof on Friday, 28 October at The Market Place.
Slated as the Middle East’s longest-running poetry open mic night, Rooftop Rhythms enters its second decade while doing its part to build the performing arts scene of the UAE.
Head to the roof where leading and up-and-coming spoken word artists, poets and musicians presenting original material promise to entertain.
Head to the roof and experience culturally-diverse voices with a line-up that features open mic nights and poetry slam competitions.
