Migritudes: Digital Music, Identity, and Place

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Shailja Patel describes Migritude as "a generation of migrants who don't feel the need to be silent to protect themselves.” Digital music breaks silence by equipping a generation of migrants with a dynamic global platform. We will discuss the roots of popular sounds and examine how they relate to mass globalization by exploring the intersections of music, identity and migration as related to technology. Participants will leave better informed for their event production, music making, and engagement with cultural practices.
