Join Los-Angeles-born South Asian American Sikh recording artist SETI X for this visual journey exploring Hip-Hop Culture and its relationship with South Asian American youth and their development of self-identity.
Participants will be able to hear music and watch videos of the development of this scene from the early 80’s onwards. SETI X will take the audience on an exploration of the trajectory of artists who have pioneered this space, as well as the current musical landscapes of South Asian American artists reclaiming their culture and expressing themselves through Hip-Hop Music.
