Activist, DJ, and A/P/A Institute at NYU Artist-in-Residence Ushka (Thanushka Yakupitiyage) curates a conversation on the impact that migrations from South Asia, Africa, South America, and the Caribbean have had on the creation of diasporic, border-traversing sounds. Panelists discuss the role of globalization and digital culture in expanding the reach of diasporic music at the same that many nation states tighten their borders and restrict the flow of migrants.

No Borders, an after-party and fundraiser hosted by Ushka and featuring DJs and performers representing migrant sounds, follows. All proceeds to go to the Immigrant Defense Project, Families for Freedom, and New Sanctuary Coalition of NYC.

Registration for the panel will open in Spring 2019. Tickets to the after-party can be purchased here.
