Hours ago, the incomparable MIA shared her brand new video for “Borders” on Apple Music, and it features refugees. Beautifully executed and thought-provoking as usual, her timely video gives us a perspective on what it’s like to be estranged from civilization and placed on the outside. Spoiler: The human ship is mind-blowing.
Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, the Tamil artist, shared a heartwarming note via tweet to honor her uncle:
“I want to dedicate this video to my uncle Bala my icon and role model. One of the first Tamil migrant to come to the UK in the 60s who went to inspire so many people as a creative daring man with so much swag that everything I do doesn’t even touch his sides. Thank you for helping my family come to England and taking out of Sri Lanka and saving us.
Everything I became was to say thank you to you!”
