Today, Oct. 11, is both International Day Of The Girl and National Coming Out Day, which means it’s the perfect day for Madame Gandhi to share new music. Kiran Gandhi, the Los Angeles-based electronic musician and activist who used to be M.I.A.’s drummer and who first garnered attention in 2015 for running the London Marathon while free-bleeding, released her debut solo EP, Voices, late last year. And next week, she’s returning with Voices Remix, a new remix EP that reworks her songs to showcase the talent of other women of color. That includes Gizzle, the gay female rapper who’s written for Kanye West and Snoop Dogg and turned heads in Puff Daddy’s “You Could Be My Lover,” who adds her own impressive verse to the moody reflection of “Gandhi Blues.” The music video features both artists along with some striking visual effects, and you can watch and listen below.
