Part of Music at BAM, a programming series curated by poet Hanif Abdurraqib.

Offendum’s genre-bridging performance—spanning hip-hop, Arabic instrumentation, and ḥakawātī oral storytelling traditions of the Levant—imagines early 20th-century life in the heart of the Lower Manhattan neighborhood once known as Little Syria (1880—1940).
