MIA Biography - Genre-Pulping Politicised Genius
It's not easy to define Maya Arulpragasam - in fact,
one of the most amazing things about her music is how unclassifiable it is. The Sri Lanka-born star raps, sings and shouts,
channelling everything from abrasive electro to minimal rock to banghra. Before finding pop fame she moved in London rock
circles, designing album artwork for the likes of Elastica and dabbling in visual art and video too. It wasn't until 2005,
when she released her daring debut album Arular, when the world finally heard what she had to say. The album featured work
from production kingpins Diplo, Switch and Richard X among others, and took its name from a political code name used by her
father, a member of the Tamil Tigers militant group.
She didn't let up, releasing second album Kala in 2007, featuring
the smash 'Paper Planes' then raised her game further on 2010's Maya. Such was her profile that she was invited to perform
with Madonna at the 2012 Super Bowl Half Time Show, making headlines around the world for her onstage gestures. How will she
turn heads next? Find out by purchasing MIA tickets on StubHub UK, assured under our industry-first FanProtect
