WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

During the Arab Spring, rappers in countries including Egypt and Tunisia responded to the protests in ways that made them symbols of generational and societal change, serving as torchbearers of the movement's progressive energy and defiant spirit. Building on the trailblazing success of its Muslim Voices: Arts & Ideas festival in June of 2009, BAM brings together a host of these intrepid anthem writers alongside traditional musicians and percussionists in Mic Check--an evening of contemporary music borne of radical social and political change.
