Things We May Need by Abdu Ali in conversation w/ Jerrell Gibbs


Abdu Ali is an American electronic music artist, writer, and cultural worker based in Baltimore. Their music is an idiosyncratic blend of punk, jazz, Baltimore club music, and rap. Performing across the United States and Europe, through their energetic visceral live shows, spiritualizing audiences, they have been anointed as a cosmic, punk, and soulful tempest on stage. Ali’s art practice spans across sound, dialogue, literary text, and performance.

Ali has performed at MoMa Ps1, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Kennedy Center and their work has been highlighted by the New York Times, The Fader, Elephant Magazine and Tracks Arte TV. Ali has been a recipient of a 2018 Ruby Artist Grant and have held residencies at 2018 Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp and 2018 Pioneer Works. In 2019, Ali founded as they lay, a curatorial platform that claims space for critical dialogue, collaboration and radical envisioning for Black creative futures.
