M.I.A. – Bamboo Banga

Because she so eccentrically badass and everyone should experience an ! I was turned onto M.I.A. back in 05 when I spent a few months in Brazil. M.I.A and Diplo brought in some pretty sweet Rio Baile Funk. And I being the crazy girl that I am, I actually went to a full on “funk” party in Rio de Janeiro and it was off the chain crazy! Something totally foreign, fun and at the same time frightening. These parties are held in favelas. If you don’t know what a favela is check out the indie flick, City of God, shit’s crazy and you don’t ever want to stumble inside one of these slums uninvited.

M.I.A. has received mad hype with the release of Kala, more specifically the song “Paper Planes.” If you’re new to her music, check out her tracks off Arular as well. She’s back oun tour and hittin up the US so get your tickets now because they will sell out. Her tour kicks off at Coachella on the 26th of April. For more tour dates clickhere.

Stay tuned for some photos and words from her San Diego show on the 28th!
