Join us to support India-based Tiny Drops Hip Hop Community Center, which now has locations in Mumbai and Delhi. Under the care, vision and commitment of Netarpal 'Heera' Singh and the SlumGods collective, Tiny Drops has emerged as a creative hub and haven for children living in local slums, offering alternative music/dance/arts and cultural programming and events, including workshops in breaking and graffiti.
Hosted by: MC Mandeep Sethi(Zulu Nation-All Tribes/SlumGods), Representing Slum Gods as well as the global Hip-Hop scene, Mandeep Sethi is a young yet seasoned emcee/activist from Los Angeles that has shown and proven his ability to rhyme and freestyle with the best. Mandeep's primary focus is to educate the youth about the circumstances in which we are living in while resonating ancient indigenous cultures within them, revealing the gods in all of us. From rhyming to djing, music serves as the language translating beats and words into scripts and hymns.
Musical Performance by BROWN UNIVERSITY, the hip-hop side project of THE KOMINAS (of Taqwacore fame).
Plus guest numbers by South Bronx BBoys!
Enjoy dope videos, snacks and drinks, & good vibes!

About 3rd i NY
3rd I New York’s monthly film/video/media salon is designed by local filmmakers and cultural producers to showcase the works of independent media makers of South Asian, Central Asian, and Arab descent. Providing alternative forums for these filmmakers who often have few venues to showcase their work and whose cultures and histories are often demonized or misrepresented in mainstream media, not only increases their visibility, but also provides a social forum for peers and audiences to participate in an ongoing discussion.
3rdi NY Film Programming is made possible in part by the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by NYSCA and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Alwan for the Arts hosts our monthly screenings series. We are thankful to the SINGH Foundation for acting as our fiscal sponsor.
