Unification 2010

Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette St, New York, NY

Commencing at 11 pm on Saturday, August 14 (Pakistan's Independence Day) and continuing into the early morning hours of August 15 (India's Independence Day), UNIFICATION 2010 celebrates 63 years of independence and the voices of talented, socially conscious South Asian/American artists.  With performances by DJ Rekha, The Kominas, Hari Kondabolu, Fair and Kind, and curated by spoken-word duo BROWNSTAR, UNIFICATION 2010 will explore the politics of our motherlands, reveal the experiences of being brown outside of it, and question the tensions between us, while fostering a movement towards a more peaceful, unified South Asia.
