Mathnagi “Maya” Arulpragasam, better known by her stage name M.I.A, is a Grammy-nominated British singer, rapper, songwriter, producer, political activist and designer, of Sri Lankan Tamil descent. In early 2004, the singles Galang and Sunshowers stirred interest throughout the internet, and her debut album Arular (2005) was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Her track Paper Planes, from second album Kala (2007), was used on the soundtrack to the 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire and entered the UK top 20, going to number four in the US. Her third album, Maya, is out now. Always controversial, the video for Born Free, the lead single, caused a stir when it came out, but for all the right reasons.
