On August 9th, 2014, Mike Brown was shot by the police in Ferguson, Missouri. In the past year we’ve seen an important movement blossom and build, centering black people and forcing others community of colors to confront what it means to be in solidarity and in community. This album is mixtape of movement songs created by South Asian, Asian Americans and Black musicians/activists in the past few years. Mishthi Music is a site that primarily focuses on sharing South Asian American music and we feel strongly that to truly culture shift values, we need to use arts, music and pop culture. This mixtape is our little contribution as Desi Americans to this movement that is centering #BlackLivesMatter and pushing for racial justice.
