This week, Priya chats with DJ Rekha, founder of Basement Bhangra™ — one on New York City's longest running club nights. Rekha reflects on what it was like to achieve a 20-year milestone with Basement Bhangra, and what life has been like since the party wrapped. The two chat about the history of music in the South Asian queer movement, and Rekha shares what it's like to create and hold spaces for South Asian LGBTQ+ folks as a DJ. Later, Priya asks Rekha about her take on Bollywood remixes and remakes, and the two chat about "Veere Di Wedding" and why the reaction to the film has been so polarizing. Come celebrate Pride month, and a historic first season of Queering Desi, with "Queering Desi: Beyond the Podcast" in NYC on Thursday, June 28!
