India's First Transgender Band drops a Viral Debut Single

Posted at January 11th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

India’s first transgender band 6 Pack Band has released its first music video and single ‘Hum Hain Happy’. The single is an amazing cover of Pharell’s “Happy” and is a never-seen-before effort to break the stigma surrounding the ‘third gender’ in India. The single has been curated and promoted by Y-Films, the youth wing of premier Indian production house Yash Raj Films, and has distinct Indian undertones blended with transgender community’s musical traditions such as clapping to the beats of the song.

Hindi lyrics interspersed in between the original lyrics makes one reflect on the abject conditions and humiliations this community faces on a daily basis. As Anushka Sharma addresses in a voiceover at the beginning of the video, “the third gender, ignored by most, tolerated by some, misunderstood by all.” Check out the video here:

With already over 1.4 Million views in couple of days, this video is going viral and The six-member band will be releasing a series of five more music videos on their experiences over the next few months. Follow us on Facebook for further updates.
