Abdu Ali is a Baltimore based music artist, producer, poet, and multidisciplinary artist who works in sound, video, social practice and performance. Their work often interrogates ideas of race, gender, and sexuality that manifests as poetic inquiries of identity, promoting liberation from oppressive ideologies and encouraging self-determination. Their work also centers promoting authentic Black queer legacies and narratives as our histories are often subjected to distortion and erasure.
Shirine Saad is a Beirut-born multimedia storyteller, programmer and DJ focusing on culture and social change. She teaches Arts Journalism at Brown University’s Arts Institute, and is a curator-in-residence at Brooklyn venue Public Records. Her DJ practice is a mashup of real and abstract experiences around the world – explorations through Dub, Free Jazz, percussive rituals, soulful and spiritual vocals, poetry, and underground sounds from Beirut to Kingston.
La Neve is a project of Rhode Island based musician, organizer, and historian Joey La Neve DeFrancesco. Mixing punk, dance, and house, La Neve performances are equal parts drag show, mosh pit, and rave. The music centers on themes of power, labor, sex, and possibility, and has received accolades from NPR, Paper, Pitchfork, KEXP, Stereogum, and others. La Neve will release a new record in spring of 2022, a followup to their 2019 LP The Vital Cord. On the latest EP, Karna Ray–also of the punk band The Kominas–has joined on drums, providing a powerful new energy on both the band’s recordings and live performances. “
