Discostan Returns To India For 3-City Tour
11 May 2022
San Francisco-based South Asia, West Asia and North Africa-celebrating outfit Discostan has announced an India tour, performing in New Delhi, Mumbai and Pune between May 11 – 15.
Discostan was started by Hyderabad-born Arshia Haq, whose own decentralised idea of a “homeland” as a modern-day immigrant in a globalised world helped her find the musical connecting thread between regions with a shared sense of heritage, trauma, struggle and achievement. Consolidating the decolonised identities with club nights, Arshia banded together with Jeremy Loudenback to turn Discostan into a collective and then a label, widely lauded for its community-building within the brown diaspora.
Digging through cultures and speaking to local voices to inform their curation for each endeavour, Discostan presents a unique and wide-ranging sound for the dancefloor – which Arshia will bring herself on the upcoming India tour.
