Smoke Notes

The M.I.A 2005 debut Arular introduced an unsuspecting music world to Maya Arulpragasam's peculiar brand of South London slang, and launched the offbeat electro-rapper and lyricist onto the world stage – touring with Gwen Stefani and recording with hip hop superstars Timbaland and Missy Elliot.
Where that album was named after Maya's Sri Lankan freedom-fighting father, Kala pays nominal tribute to her mother, and sees the UK-based artist travelling and recording across multiple continents, recruiting her own musical United Nations complete with Bollywood sirens, candomble drums, and video game bleeps. Samples and cameos abound, with borrowed bits from New Order and Tamil film soundtrack artists; guests like Blaqstarr, Diplo and Timbaland; and songs based on – unexpectedly - the Clash, Modern Lovers and the Pixies, as well as traditional music and performers from some of the locales the recording road trip visited.
A carnival album with contemporary themes, multi-layered musical references and a massive sense of humour.
