Activist and DJ 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—Ana C. Calle/LaPhDj (University of Texas, Austin), Rekha Malhotra/DJ Rekha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Suzanne Persard (Emory University), and Boima Tucker/Chief Boima (Africa is a Country/INTLBLK)—discuss the role of globalization and digital culture in expanding the reach of diasporic music when many nation states tighten their borders and restrict the flow of migrants. No Borders—an after-party and fundraiser, including DJ sets by Ushka, Oscar Nñ, Riobamba, Chief Boima, and DJ Rekha—immediately follows.
