An afternoon of gloriously global diaspora rock! Each band/artist has aunique vision of cultural fusion:
Boston's Awaaz Do serves up postcolonial rock and roll, featuring the sounds of South Asia from Bollywood to qawwali.
Philadelphia's Interminable is a diasporic space fusion project which brings together the afromestizo rhythms of son jarocho from Veracruz, Mexico, with that of jazz, rock, and electronic music
