Midnight in the Diaspora

State of LA!

Tue / Oct 20, 2020 - 6:30PM

A summit of DJs who shape the global sounds of L.A.’s nightlife.


About this Performance

Curated by influential DJ and cultural programmer Sasha Ali (a.k.a. Miss Modular), Midnight in the Diaspora explores how L.A.-based artists either born outside of the United States or working between more than one country are bringing a combination of global influences to the city’s music and nightlife. DJs build community in the club, where dancers can both reimagine who they are and find new versions of themselves reflected in the mirrorball. This hybrid panel discussion and performance features Discostan’s Arshia Fatima Haq, NTS DJ and Junkyard Jouvert producer Adam Cooper (a.k.a. foreigner), and creative producer Anita Herrera, who splits time between L.A. and Mexico City, as well as music by East-African retro-pop musician Alsarah, Afro-Canadian singer/songwriter Pierre Kwenders, and Lao and Speak, who bridge Latin American club music with West Coast rap.
