On September 23rd, 2011 in Washington DC at 9pm there will be the D.C.’s FIRST South Asian American Hip Hop Show. For more info visit www.subcontinentaldrift.org

Subcontinental Drift, a collective of South Asian artists and organizers based in Washington, D.C., presents Drift Elemental,  D.C.’s first hip-hop show featuring a lineup of South Asian American  artists. The concert will take place at Liv Nightclub, located upstairs at the historic Bohemian Caverns. Doors will open at 8 p.m. with the show beginning at 9 p.m. A dance party featuring Drift Elemental’s DJs will follow. The aim of Drift Elemental is to present South Asian artists in the context  of old school hip-hop’s four elements, which include rapping, DJ-ing, graffiti art and breakdancing. The concert will feature acts from  Washington, D.C. and New York. Local rapper Navid Azeez will headline with his live band, The Whole Damme Delegation, and the lineup includes MCs Ko the Timeless and Raja Wilco. A DJ crew headed by NYC’s DJ Insomnia  will not only battle on the turntables, but also give a short presentation on the history of South Asians in hip-hop. While all this is taking place on stage, a team of graffiti artists and break dancers will be among the crowd. [subcontinentaldrift]
