Event Description

Growing up between cultures, first and second-generation immigrants of the Indian subcontinent have been creating a space for self-expression that acknowledges their hyphenated identities as Desis outside of South Asia. Join us for an exciting and growing lineup of genre-bending creatives defining modern South Asian-American identity through the arts, including the international powerhouse Punjabi singer G. Sidhu; crystalline-voiced singer-songwriter and Television Academy honoree Rianjali; rap, R&B, and hip-hop artists Taizu, Rolex Rasathy, and Robin Dey; plus Desi and hip-hop beats from DJ Sharad and performances by IMGE Dance, SA Grooves, and Project Convergence that fuse Indian classical and traditional dance with hip-hop, tap, and more.
