Season seven of the Middle East’s longest-running poetry open mic night. Experience culturally-diverse voices with both leading and up-and-coming musicians and poets presenting their own original material.
Rooftop Rhythms and The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi are committed to providing a platform for locally based artists to share their original creative work in front of a supportive community. In an effort to foster local talent, we ask that all musicians play or sing original material.
