Eastern Margins

Hailing from the London Town, Eastern Margins is a platform and collective showcasing music from the margins of East & South-East Asia and its diaspora.

Born out of the frustration of a lack of good Lunar New Year parties, the collective nearly five years on from its beginnings has become a mainstay in London’s music underground scene.

Today’s show features founder David Zhou (@triplelumi) and newest member Cheri (@shrssalee) discussing everything from navigating the music world as part of the ESEA community, being double diasporic and why Bloc Party meant so much to them. Plus a mix of the best Eastern Margins label releases from Jex Wang (@asiangirlfriend).
