Based in Los Angeles but a native of New York City, Kiran Gandhi, aka Madame Gandhi, is a singer, percussionist, activist. She is known for her electronic-based sound and fourth-wave feminist perspective. Before her solo career, she toured with M.I.A. as the band’s drummer. You may also know her as the drummer for big name acts such as Krewella, Lizzo and Kehlani.

Gandhi is just as smart as she is talented. She studied Political Science, Mathematics, and Women’s Studies at Georgetown University and then went on to receive a M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. Talk about an all around knock out.
