Sights & Sounds: Cherríe Moraga

Aug 17, 2017

Sights & Sounds is your weekly guide to the Bay Area arts scene. Playwright, poet, essayist, and activist Cherríe Moraga told KALW’s Jen Chien about three fantastic arts events happening around the Bay this week.

Today's local music is Black Mahal, featuring the Godfather of Punjabi-American music, Ustad Lai Singh Bhatti. Black Mahal isn’t a band, it’s an experience! They say they represent the new California feel – hippy hybrid hip-hop. You can experience this musical-theatrical mash-up on Thursday, May 30th, as part of this year’s Yerba Buena Gardens Festival of free music. They’ll perform from 12:30 to 1:30 in the afternoon.
