Artist biography Kiran Gandhi
Indian-origin Kiran Gandhi, who is the drummer for famous rapper MIA (real name: Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam), when she is not attending classes and completing assignments at Harvard Business School.
"Being on tour with MIA felt like an amazing challenge for someone like me who wasn't a professional drummer," says Kiran Gandhi, over a phone conversation from the US. She was working at Interscope Records as an analyst when she found out that MIA, (signed with Interscope then), needed a drummer. She sent across a cd of her work via the record company's product manager. The rapper was impressed and asked Kiran Gandhi to come on board.
Kiran has said to draw inspiration from Mindy Abovitz.
