Desi Art Night with Discostan

Miscellaneous | January 12 | 6 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Artist group Desi hosts a night of collaborative artmaking scored by celebrated Los Angeles–based DJ collective Discostan. Discostan presents musical narratives from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay, weaving a sonic tapestry that threads together Bollywood numbers and Lebanese cinema scores; psychedelic funk from Turkey, Iran, Burma, and Thailand; Syrian dabke, Iraqi choubi, Afghan qataghani, and Egyptian electro-chaabi; contemporary musical experiments, and archival field recordings. Discostan is a love letter to the dis-Orient.
