Inventions For Radio presents Arshia Fatima Haq

tue 26 nov 2013

Wednesday November 27th, 23.00 CET, Inventions for Radio presents the work of the Los Angeles based filmmaker, writer and DJ Arshia Fatima Haq. In this episode she will give an impression of her project Discostan: about different musical narratives from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia and eastward to the edge of the earth – from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay.

 

Discostan is a collective of artists curating sound, image, and text from an imagined federation of states spanning the regions of Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia and eastward to the edge of the earth – from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay. Narrative threads include migration, celebration, warfare, nostalgia, homeland, borders, often within realms of Islamic influence, through the lenses of timeless traditional forms, the kaleidoscopic reinventions of pop culture, and everything in between and beyond. Most simply, Discostan is a love letter to the Dis-Orient.
