Border Movement Launches
13 July 2012
A Berlin based team have recently launched Border Movement, a new online platform that aims to both encourage interaction and strengthen ties between electronic music scenes in South Asia and Germany.
The site intends to raise awareness in Germany about growing electronic music trends in South Asia (and vice versa) by providing information and content about artists, labels, trends, clubs, festivals, parties, jam sessions, exhibitions, installations, screenings, concerts, demonstrations/protests, releases, projects, players, promoters, creators, movers, shakers and innovators in both regions.
Border Movement have hooked up with Wild City who have sourced both established and grassroots writers, bloggers and artists from cities across India to provide a regular stream of content. Currently the site will cover content from New Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Chennai, Bangalore, Pune, Dhaka, Colombo, Lahore and Kabul with more cities to be added as the site progresses.
With support from the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan, Border Movement aspires to become a cultural catalyst within the two regions with a sharp and exciting long term vision for a collaborative electronic music scene. The initiative officially launches tonight (13 July) in Berlin with our very own Wild City DJ flying the Indian flag alongside Mumbai based Sound Curry.
