Rapper, poet and award-winning author Omar Musa brings his electrifying show Since Ali Died to Melbourne.
Written and performed by Australia’s powerhouse spoken word poet Omar Musa, Since Ali Died is a triumphant and politically-charged work of storytelling, rap and song.
Using the death of his hero Muhammad Ali as a lyrical springboard, Musa dives into a furious torrent of poetry, story and song, confronting everything from suburban violence to lost love to his Malaysian heritage and the dark realities of growing up as a brown-skinned Muslim boy in Queanbeyan, Australia.
Omar Musa, a Malaysian-Australian rapper, poet and author from Queanbeyan, is one of Australia’s most important young voices. In his writing and music, he confronts the dark realities of Australian history and culture.
This important work from Griffin Theatre Company is a highlight of Arts Centre Melbourne’s 2019 Big World Up Close performance series.
