    Arshia Haq is a filmmaker, writer, and DJ based in Los Angeles. She is the Founder of Discostan, a collective dedicated to media from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay. Discostan has been featured in KCET’s Artbound, Good Magazine, and LA Weekly.

    On her monthly show, Radio Discostan presents musical narratives from Eastern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia and eastward to the edge of the earth. Narrative threads include migration, celebration, warfare, nostalgia, homeland, borders, often within realms of Islamic influence, through the lenses of timeless traditional forms, the kaleidoscopic reinventions of pop culture, and everything in between and beyond. Most simply, Discostan is a love letter to the Dis-Orient.
