Share this page:
Passion. Tradition. Mix it up. On Saturday, May 4, MATATU’s Nomadic Cinema series continues with a journey through the shared histories of migration and cultural resilience of the South Asian and African diasporas. Travel begins with a plated dinner prepared by Chef Preeti Mistry of Juhu Beach Club and moves into a talk featuring Heta Fell of the award-winning Stance Podcast, and Sana Javeri Kadri of Diaspora Co. spice company.

More folks hop on the matatu later on for a screening of Mira Nair’s MISSISSIPPI MASALA, and then we’ll pull into the big city at 10pm for TROPITAAL III: a Desi Latino Soundclash! featuring DJ Leydis of Cuba and DJ’s Anjali & The Incredible Kid of Portland’s Tropitaal and ANDAZ, the nation’s longest running Desi dance party.
