Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.
In Episode 2, our special M.I.A. series consisting of in-depth reviews kicks off with her debut album "Arular" from 2005. We will follow this in the coming weeks with podcasts for "Kala", "MAYA" and "Matangi" in preparation for her (possibly final) album "AIM" which gets released on 9th September 2016.
We talk about the first time we got us some Maya Arulpragasam, the dreaded 'D' word, try to figure out who actually wrote "Galang" and then add on a whole bunch of bonus talk at the end.
Jesal is from the UK, and Rochard is from America. We like to talk in depth about albums, films, TV shows and books.
Rochard has a background in TV, acting, writing and many other areas of art creation. Jesal has a background in music: DJ, producer, artist, critic and other stuff.
