 Abdu Ali (1 Albums, 9 Tracks)

Artist

Abdu Ali
CURATOR:
LOCATION:Baltimore, MD

Erected from the ghettos of Baltimore, Abdu Ali raps, sings, and chats over unorthodox and future sounds, creating music that is visceral, spiritual, and very real. From his energetic visceral performances, spiritualizing audiences as a cosmic, punk, and soulful tempest on stage to his work to transcend musical boundaries has put in him in genre categories along lines of afro-futurism to noise rap to “post-apocalyptic” sounding.

Championing Baltimore Club music in the fabric in most of his beats, through his work as a curator of Kahlon (an epic music event), writings, and outspokenness via social media/interviews Ali, has been elected as a radical underground Baltimore music and cultural figure. Unapologetically black and queer, Abdu Ali is bold, raw, and most importantly life-affirming.

Abdu Ali has done several tours all over the US and released 4 music projects. He has shared the same stage with various artists like Big Freedia to MC Lyte to XXYXX, has toured with Lower Dens in Fall 2015, and his work has been covered by Complex, AfroPunk, Saint Heron, Noisey, Impose Magazine, Stereogum, The Fader, and many more.
