'So Sari' information
ARTafterDARK is excited to present DJ Rekha, the queen of bhangra in New York City. She's the mastermind behind SOB's long-running monthly Basement Bhangra in Manhattan.
It will be a sultry subcontinental night with:
• The courtyards each featuring an element of major Indian holidays such as Diwali and Onam. Guests get a chance to be creative with flowers by helping to make a pukalam.
• A street market with "vendors" such as a chaiwalla displaying spices, a henna artist, a general store selling snacks such as Bombay Mix. Mmmm.
• A zip tour of the Academy's stellar Jhamandas Watumull Gallery of Indian Art by Honolulu Academy of Arts docent Manu Chakravertty at 7:00 p.m. Don't miss the impressive Nandi's Head, the massive bull that transports Shiva.
• Indian cuisine by E&O Trading Co.
