new music: Madame Gandhi
If you’re looking for a song to motivate you, to get you moving, to inspire you, “Top Knot Turn Up” by Madame Gandhi is for you. It’s a vibrant video packed with feminist imagery including uterus and ovaries sculptures, the Supreme Court and Madame Gandhi HQ. The video is directed by Justine Raczkiewicz and features a cast of female-identifying and gender non-confirming folks.
Los Angeles-based musician and activist Kiran, who performs as Madame Gandhi, was recently listed on Forbes 30 Under 30. She has drummed for M.I.A, Thievery Corporation, TV on the Radio, Kehlani and Lizzo. Madame Gandhi holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Women’s Studies from Georgetown and an MBA from Harvard.
What an inspiration. I feel like such an under-achiever!
Her short form album, Visions, is out tomorrow.
