I was recently introduced to Hass Dennaoui, a music advocate who hosts a hip hop radio show on 105.5 FM in Jeddah. He is doing some really interesting work in the Saudi music industry, working to change local perceptions of hip-hop in a socially responsible and culturally appropriate way. We’ve connected several times since our introduction and after Jordan was born he honored us with a shout-out to him on his radio show.
>> CLICK HERE to listen to the shout out. It’s cut right to the spot where he talks about Jordan.
And, if anyone is interested in learning more about his work or tuning into his show check out:
