The Music of Living Beings


Everybody seems to know MK, the singer of the moment, with her amazing voice and her eccentric girlfriend, Gaia. But, who is MK? What happens when the lights are out? When the last tour comes to an end? When mikes are off? Maybe silence is needed to find oneself. Maybe even music does not make much sense without those soundless spaces. It is precisely then that MK goes back to her broken roots, of the disruption of her childhood in rural Tamil Nadu  by the imposed migration back to the metropolis. In the broken sounds of broken pots, MK writes and leads her steps towards the place where the crow’s caws become music.
