A hip-hop, alt-rock, jazz fusion from Michigan


Nadim Azzam brings his passion as a lyricist, MC, guitarist, and soul singer to the Ark. At 24, this young Ann Arborite built a name with his heartfelt, rap-laced solo acoustic set, and has been amassing a national following in love with his rapid-fire hip-hop delivery fused with the sincerity of a 1950s love song balladeer. His original music is a hip-hop, alt-rock, jazz fusion that uplifts and inspires, bringing that feel-good, smile worthy element found in Ed Sheeran, Michael Franti, and G Love & The Special Sauce. His powerful debut EP, Here’s to Changes Vol. 1, already landed him a nationwide campus tour with Matisyahu. Nadim is currently working on his first full-length album, expected in 2020. Singer-songwriter Althea Grace opens. Althea’s music can best be described as in-your-face indie blues with heavy doses of jazz, pop, and rock.

This show is FREE! Nonperishables (and cash) accepted for Food Gatherers.
