THROWBACK THURSDAY -2007 KALA Here is Sadie with second studio album by English-Sri Lankan recording artist M.I.A. It was my favorite album of 2007, and was named album of the decade by critic Robert Christgau in a 2009 Rolling Stone poll. Favorite songs are “Paper Planes”, “Jimmy”, “Mango Pickle Down River”, and “Boys”. #vinyl #vinylcollection #vinylcommunity #vinylcollectionpost #cincyvinylcats #catsofinstagram #catsandvinyl #mia #mathangiarulpragasam #kala #paperplanes #nooneonthecornerhasswaggerlikeus #nowspinning

it was when she said... i feel like a mirror reflecting back everyone’s perception of me... she was telling all our stories. go see this documentary. it will change you. | @miamatangi #mathangiarulpragasam #MIA
#throwbacksunday ❤️ to the time @rizahmed interviewed @miamatangi for @interviewmag. When you bring two strong-willed, highly opinionated creative individuals together for a sit down - you know it’s going to be entertaining to read. The interview was kind of hilarious too 😊 This was published back in April, but the interview was inservice for @miamatangi Matangi/Maya/M.I.A., a new documentary based on her life that took a decade in the making. P.S: Can we also get these two in the studio to create a fire record? Yes, please!

🌪 M.I.A 🌪 Mathangi Arulpragasam fled her home country Sri Lanka as a child, in wake of the civil war. Her songs are powerful, challenging and evocative, connected to anything from genocide and xenophobia to sustainable fashion. However, she is unable to tour America with new releases as she can’t secure a visa. From her hit ‘Bad Girls,’ which empowers otherwise commonly discriminated against Arab women, to ‘Born Free,’ which emphasises military brutality, M.I.A is a beacon of awareness. #mathangiarulpragasam #mia #activist #unapologetic #activism #webelievesurvivors #dilutethepower #change #believechristine #stopkavanaugh #blacklivesmatter

Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam is one genius lyricist. I been a fan of her music since her first album and you really have to understand her to understand her music.

Happy 43rd birthday to rapper M.I.A., who I've adored since hearing her song "Bucky Done Gun" and fully embraced when her hit "Paper Planes" hit the airwaves following it's use in the trailer to Pineapple Express. Best wishes to her. #miarapper #mathangiarulpragasam #greatmusicians #bestrappers #beautifulwomen

TWOFER TUESDAY ARULAR (2005) KALA (2007 Wishing an very happy (early) birthday to Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam, who turns 43 tomorrow.

~ "Paper Planes", "Bad Girls", "Borders", "Finally", and "Bring The Noize" by M.I.A. ~ @miamatangi · Mathangi Arulpragasam otherwise known as "Maya" or as her stage name M.I.A. is an amazing musical artist as well as an outspoken Activist for social causes which often even bleeds into her music. She is a one of a kind artist who really takes the risk of bringing politics into music but she does it fearlessly and really pushes people to try and get involved in what going on in the world and to look at things differently. After listening and reading a bunch of her interviews ("People Forget I'm Many Things: M.I.A. on Identity, Politics, and Being Understood" by Lior Phillips from ConsequenceOfSound.net is a really good one btw) I wanted to say that I really like how passionate she is as well as being upfront and willing to have a conversation. Apart from politics though, her music mainly consists of Hip Hop, Electronic, Grime, and Dance. I would be suprised to actually find someone who enjoys music and has never heard of her song "Paper Planes" which is easily her most popular ("Bad Girls" is my personal fav though 😉) as well as being regarded as one of the best songs of the decade by some. M.I.A's is an extremely talented person who makes great music and honestly wants the best for everyone. Hopefully if you dont agree with some of her political stances that are in some of her songs you can still enjoy the art and maybe try to learn something from it. Its always good to try and understand things you disagree with and learn a new point of view and I think that is one thing that M.I.A. really strives to get people to do. As always if you enjoy her music definitely go listen to her stuff 😃 [Ignore Tags🙊] #MitchLikesMusic #MIA #MathangiArulpragasam #PaperPlanes #NewMusic #Music #GoodMusic #HipHop #ElectronicMusic

Vol. 23 in the: "My CD player is still broken, so I'll just start recollecting all my fave / classic albums on vinyl instead of getting it fixed or going digital" list: . M.I.A. - '/\/\/\Y/\' (NEET/XL Recordings - 2010). Double heavy vinyl in black discobags, in glossy gatefold sleeve, with single sided printed credits insert. Plus UK special edition CD in jewel case and lenticular 3D/Hologram slipcase. . AKA: 'MAYA'... Still my fave M.I.A. album by a lightyear. Flows perfectly around the loud clatter, rabble and damn-right nasty sampling, pounding your face in every step of the way. But peppered with some genuinely gorgeous, sexy, arse-shaking and tongue in cheek moments amidst the politics and snarls. ✌😘 Much love @MIAmatangi . #classicalbumsallformats #MIA #MayaArulpragasam #MathangiArulpragasam #MAYA #NEET #XLrecordings #bornfree #xxxo #hiphop #rap #diplo #electronic #iwillgetmycdplayerfixedsoon #vinyl #vinyljunkie #gatefold #deluxevinyl #12inch #CD #lenticular #hologram #album #compactdisc #collectables #recordjunkie #recordcollectors #recordcollection #LP #instavinyl
