About the Ragini Festival

The Ragini Festival explores art, creative impetus, and mythology from a post-continental India. Life after colonialism revealed a fractured South Asian identity, which has morphed into post-colonial identities of Indo-Caribbean, Fijian, Mauritian, and more. Representing Ragini Festival’s curatorial mission to “explore music that both captures folk and traditional art born out of the migrations of indentureship”  DJs Roshni Samlal, Zara Dekho, and offering rain will transport you into a trans-indies listening experience.
