Versus: Oddisee in Lisbon - April 25.
Amir Mohamed el Khalifa, is Oddisee.
Born in Washington DC, Amir is the son of a Sudanese father and an African-American mother.
His origins are reflected in his lyrics and his political awareness makes his voice a very important element. Having a voice and being aware of what that means.
Musically, Oddisee fuses elements of jazz, funk and soul into its organic production. There aren't many like him. The same goes for his choice to bypass the industry and avoid record deals. Instead, Oddissee chose to produce and record his albums independently and handle his marketing strategies himself.
“To What End”, “The Beauty in All”, “Alwasta”, “The Iceberg” or “The Good Fight” are some of his recording works.
Oddisee will perform iin Lisbon, on the April 25 at B.Leza.
Tickets are now available.
Versus. History in the making.
