Kefaya dedicates a track to the tragic Nirbhaya case

Posted at January 20th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Kefaya are an international collective of musicians founded in UK by musicians and producers, Giuliano Modarelli and Al MacSween. An eclectic group of immigrants, travellers and international artists, Kefaya seek to find the common ground between folk traditions of the world with a cutting-edge sound rooted firmly in the 21st century.

On 28th December 2014, Kefaya played the first concert of their India tour in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, featuring a performance of a then untitled track originally composed and partly recorded with musicians in Kolkata. After discovering this date is the anniversary of the tragic ‘Nirbhaya’ case in Delhi two years earlier, they decided to dedicate this song to Jyoti Singh and the inspiring protests and social movements that followed her death.

For many years Kefaya have continued to be inspired by the scores of writers, activists and political movements that have emerged from India. Whilst sexism and violence against women are massive problems across the world, Kefaya were particularly moved by the recent struggles of Indian women and men to challenge sexism and injustice, and wanted pay tribute to the spirit of their struggle. All profits from sales of the single will be donated to Kranti, an Indian women’s rights organisation based in Mumbai.

Produced by Giuliano Modarelli, Al MacSween and Sam Hobbs. Mixed by Sam Hobbs. Mastered by John Astley.
