South Asian Americans have created a unique, remix identity and culture at the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, class, and nation as revealed in Desi Rap, a collection of smart, engaging essays by some of the finest scholars and artists of the genre. Moreover, South Asian American hip-hop culture, the authors show, was conceived in resistance to oppression and mobilized a brown liberation movement. (Gary Y. Okihiro)

This book might appear to be tailored for a very limited audience of South Asian cultural scholars, but thanks to open-minded and inclusive editing by Ajay Nair and Murali Balaji, the lessons herein are fascinating for anyone interested in polyculturalism and musical experiences that transcend race and class.
