July 18 marked the start of South Asian Heritage Month, which celebrates the history and culture of eight countries in South Asia: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Maldives, and Sri Lanka. This year marks a particularly monumental milestone: the 75th anniversary of India’s and Pakistan’s independence. Through a month-long celebration on Spotify, we’re using this occasion to celebrate the wide breadth of talent in and inspired by these countries. Through a revamped on-platform hub, listeners can find popular Desi playlists, exclusive playlist takeovers from noteworthy community members, a curation of podcasts from South Asian podcasters, and more.
