Song Of The Day: Ye Hai Baghawat By Wanandaf

The caste system in India is an ever-filling source of inspiration for protest musicians in the country. This system that the powers use to constraint different classes, races and colors of people in India is an ancient idea that motivates creative people today to criticize it.

Some of those people form the rap collective Wanandaf. In a recent interview one member of the group, Agaahi, explains how they have been performing all around during these Covid times: “Since protest sites had to be vacated in the pandemic, music has to find a way to people through other means…”

“We want our music to be a wake-up call to other rappers too, use your music with care, the genre is a powerful force to speak about society…”
