Thailand Nominates Mango Sticky Rice for UNESCO Heritage List, Thanks to This Coachella Performance

Rapper Milli ate the beloved dessert on stage during her 88rising set.

Mango sticky rice, a popular Thai dessert, saw a surge in search trends following a live performance at Coachella last weekend.

Rapper Milli took the main stage for her set on Saturday as part of 88rising‘s “Head in the Clouds Forever” showcase. Wearing an all-red fit, the 19-year-old performed her hits “Mirror Mirror” and “Sud Pang,” closing her 10-minute set by proudly bringing out a bowl of mango sticky rice. “Who wants mango and rice that is sticky?” she asked the crowd as she enjoyed the dish on stage.

Following the powerful performance, Thailand’s Department of Cultural Promotion shared that it would push for the dish to be listed on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. According to reports, sales for the dessert have also risen since Milli’s stage on Saturday. One mango sticky rice shop owner told Thai PBS that “there were so many orders for mango sticky rice boxes that she could not peel the fruit fast enough, adding that she now has to peel about four crates of mangoes” instead of one.

You can watch a snippet of Milli’s performance here.
