MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A. is drawn from an archive of personal tapes shot by Maya and her closest friends over the last 22 years, capturing her remarkable journey from immigrant teenager in London, to the international pop star M.I.A.. Never letting go of her roots or her principles, M.I.A. managed to create a mash-up, cut-and-paste identity that pulled inspiration from every corner of her journey; a sonic sketchbook that blended Tamil politics, art school punk, hip-hop beats and the voice of multicultural youth.
