Ahmad Ali – Summer Concert Series

August 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Photograph of guitarist Ahmad AliRaised in a diverse community on Long Island, Ahmad Ali was exposed to a wide variety of Soul and Jazz at home. The desire to play an instrument started young: he would put rubber bands on shoeboxes to make music in conjunction with a team, he started producing all kinds of entertainment events. Their rhythm section backed up artists doing ail styles of music from classic oldies, to club music, to Caribbean and more. Ahmad expanded his support role to becoming stage manager for Protocol at the Paramount Theatre. Ahmad is heavily involved in the community, and he is active in several groups whose goals are social justice and equality. His combined love for radio and community activism comes to fruition in his work at WBAI 99.5 FM in NY and streaming at WBAI.org. He co-hosts the show “In The Moment” Friday mornings 3:30 -6:00 AM when you can hear an eclectic mix of music and talk.
