M.I.A. – Arular

$56.95 Inc. GST

M.I.A.’s explosive debut, Arular, is a fiery fusion of genres, a clash of political commentary and dance floor energy. Released in 2005, the album draws on the raw sounds of baile funk, grime, hip hop, and ragga, creating a soundscape that’s both globally diverse and distinctly M.I.A. The title itself, referencing her father’s revolutionary code name, hints at the album’s thematic core: the Sri Lankan Civil War and its impact on her family. Yet, Arular isn’t just a protest record. It’s a party fueled by infectious rhythms, where M.I.A. challenges us to move our bodies even as she confronts social and political issues. Think of it as a call to arms wrapped in a pulsating dance beat.
