Ever felt like taking a danda and smashing the head of all the eve-teasers, all the #misogynists
, and all the flagbearers of patriarchy who have ever bothered you? If yes, then the song 'Maa Beheen Ka Danda' by Pakistani music band Garam Anday is just the right one for you.
Through their band, Garam Anday, Pakistani filmmaker Anam Abbas and doctor Areeb Kishwar Usmani are creating what they refer to as “angry girl music.” They have already managed to rouse the interest of the Pakistani music scene by their debut single which is a manifestation of female anger presented with a tinge of humour.
In a conversation with @firstpost
, the duo shared, "Huge crowds of jeering onlookers while we were filming, and that initially made me nervous, but watching a group of women brandishing sticks in the streets, and spray painting ‘Aurat March 2018’ on a wall is indeed a powerful experience. It is also, in consciously creating spaces for women, and openly rebelling against gender roles ."
