Next Performance
Kominas

7/24/2017 at 6:00 PM

The Kominas began in 2005 as self-styled exemplars of Bollywood punk. Their dance-oriented sound is a wild blend of 1977-era hardcore, reggae, Punjabi folk tunes, surf rock, disco, and dub. The musicians sing in Punjabi, Urdu, and Hindi as well as English. Their lyrics proclaim a bold political awareness, with broad streaks of humor, outrage, and the absurd. The songs are meant to catalyze change in the predominantly white culture while simultaneously fostering a safe and fun space for listeners of color.
