“Born in the Village but Roaming the World” – A Look at Canadian Sikh Hip Hop

January 16, 2020

In the context of the Sikh Canadian diaspora, Brampton-based Panjabi rappers productively adapt and appropriate the anti-majority racial politics expressed in Black American hip hop. This talk examines the work of one such rapper, Fateh Singh, considering how Panjabi rap uniquely expresses a racialized diasporic subjectivity.

This event is part of the English Department Talks series.
