Day 14: A song that no one would expect you to love #30dsc

M.I.A. is the stage name of Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, a singer, rapper, songwriter, record producer and visual artist. She was born in London to SriLankan Tamil parents. Her music is influenced by her childhood experiences in Sri Lanka and India during the Sri Lankan war, and as a refugee back in the UK.

Her music makes you think, not just because of the political nature of a lot of the lyrics, but also because the melodies are so different and interesting. That’s why I love Paper Planes, which is not necessarily the style of music that people expect me to enjoy.
