Kiran Gandhi's Story

Kiran, known by her stage name Madame Gandhi, is an artist and activist based in Los Angeles. Having gained recognition as the former drummer for M.I.A. and as the iconic free-bleeding menstrual runner at the 2015 London Marathon, Madame Gandhi now writes her own electronic music that elevates and celebrates the female voice. Kiran holds a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics and women’s studies from Georgetown, and an MBA from Harvard. She has spoken and performed extensively at SXSW and was invited as a nominated changemaker earlier this year to the White House United State of Women Summit. Her upcoming EP Voices is a culmination of her experiences to date and explores themes of modern feminism.
