Manmeet Kaur


Beatmaker, MC

Chandigarh, India

A pioneering Indian MC, Manmeet exhibits skills not only as a rapper but also as a producer, video director, storyteller, and beatmaker. She began performing in 2011, as part of a Bombay-based group of human rights activists, JAPA (Justice and Peace for All), which inspired her to dig deeper “to find purpose beyond conservative appropriations and generationaly stagnating rituals.” She released a debut album in 2014, and has spent the years since, traveling and collaborating with other musicians and beatmakers, documenting many of her journeys as she goes. Several of these explorations have turned into self-produced music videos for her songs. Her recent graphic collaborations with DJ and a multidisciplinary artist, Mister Colfer, are leading to conceptual transformations as they work together on their upcoming audio visual act, C.I.T.O.P.I.R.
