    About

    Desh 2020 is a series of online concerts presented via Facebook, each featuring an artist. Each mini-concert includes an artist spotlight followed by their performance.

    45 minutes long, 9 artists over 4 weeks in Sept-Oct 2020.

    This concert is FREE and you don't have to pay to attend. It does present an opportunity for you to contribute to local arts. We would love it if you are able to donate towards a fundraiser that continues to develop and foster South Asian art in Austin and beyond.

    About Desh
    Desh is Austin’s only South Asian Music festival brought to you by Agni Foundation for the Arts. Desh 2019 featured artists like Oliver Rajamani, Ali Pervez, The Nizami family, and many more and was received by the community with appreciation. This year we intend to bring a similar line up of stalwarts.

    2020 continues to keep us socially distant but we won't let it stop us! We are very excited to bring to you the first, one of a kind online concert series! The Agni Foundation will continue to support and feature South Asian art through an online medium.
