Event Times:Aug 24th 2019 @ 7:00pm – 9:00pm
One night only!
Join The South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) for "Revolution Remix," a sound tour of Philadelphia that will change the way you understand this city and its history. Celebrate the inclusion of South Asian narratives into the heart of the American republic with five dynamic, talented South Asian musicians from across the country.
This summer’s epic performance brings together the distinct voices of Anju, Arooj Aftab, SETI X, Rudresh Mahanthappa, and Humeysha to chronicle South Asian immigrant stories from the 1780's to the present day. Mandeep's powerful lyrics, Rudresh's rhythmic compositions, Anju's magical harmonies, Zain's innovative arrangements, and Arooj's soulful melodies capture the intimate details of arrival, stories of loss, hope, and possibilities of new beginnings.
Open to all ages. Dessert bar provided!
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Space is limited.
