As a band of immigrant and gender nonconforming women, INDKNA’s music centers a radical feminist approach in its songwriting practice, as it tackles issues of bodily censorship, political unrest in Yemen and personal struggles.

INDKNA uses song to reclaim the Yemeni dialect, and innovates Yemeni music through introducing experimental genres inspired by electronic music, jazz, hip-hop and classical Arabic sounds.

The event is supported by the Arab American National Museum an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
