Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.
In Episode 3, our special M.I.A. series consisting of in-depth reviews continues with her sophomore album "Kala" from 2007. We will follow this in the coming weeks with podcasts for "MAYA" and "Matangi" in preparation for her (possibly final) album "AIM" which gets released on 9th September 2016.
We talk about how Rochard actually discovered "Kala" through some random guy who wrote a review of it; Maya Arulpragasam and her relationship with the dreaded 'D' word (Part II); Jesal takes a trip down memory lane in an "XR2" and... If you think it's tough now, come to Africa!
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.
