Gee, was established in 2011 and is a constantly evolving culinary enigma serving up an east (MISO) meets west (ALE) gastropub inspired menu at a variety of pop-up locations around Oahu. Coming from an island state where resources from beyond its waters can be costly and lack freshness, MISO & ALE sources fresh, local seasonal ingredients for their creations whenever possible. With no permanent location yet, MISO & ALE utilizes social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as their website, to inform guests of where their next pop-up location will be.

Amidst laughter and applause, at and Asian Pacific Islander reception,  President Obama said, “I want to thank DJ Rekha who’s been spinning a little East Room Bhangra for everybody mixing a hip-hop beat with the sounds of her heritage; making a uniquely American sound that may not have been heard in the White House before”,

Rekha has given lectures and led workshops on Hip Hop, politics and South Asian art for various universities and institutions including the Smithsonian, Brooklyn Museum and Columbia University. Her work has been featured on CNN, NPR, PBS.
