DJ Rekha @ the Black Cat

On Fri­day night, myself and oth­er SAALT staff mem­bers attend­ed DJ Rekha’s show at the Black Cat.  First off, I have to say: What an amaz­ing show!! I have always been a fan of DJ Rekha’s beats, but see­ing her live was fan­tas­tic.  I also want to thank Rekha and the Black Cat for let­ting SAALT table at the show.  It was refresh­ing to see many famil­iar faces and to know that so many Desis in D.C. already know about SAALT’s work.  I am a fan of Rekha, not only because she is a tal­ent­ed artist, but because she uses her music as a tool for social change.  While it is inspir­ing to see artists like Rekha get­ting involved in the South Asian move­ment, you don’t have to be a DJ to work for change for your com­mu­ni­ty.  Vol­un­teer for Be the Change, orga­nize an event in your local com­mu­ni­ty, or if you haven’t already, become a mem­ber of SAALT.  Thanks again to DJ Rekha for her con­tin­ued sup­port of SAALT and involve­ment in our work!
