Humeysha was created in India by musician Zain Alam, drawing on influences from New York to New Delhi to craft an emotional, multilingual story inspired by travel and heritage. Here, the band visits the Knockdown Center, an art center and event space dedicated to unusual projects and collaborations in Maspeth, Queens, to give their epic tale of “A Passage to America” plenty of room to stretch out.
Humeysha LP is available now.
