EPISODE #11: Straight Outta Srinagar (SOS)

Straight Outta Srinagar (SOS) © Straight Outta Srinagar (SOS) Srinagar-based hip-hop duo Straight Outta Srinagar (SOS) was formed by Tufail Nazir and Aatankki in 2020. While conflict forms an indelible part of their lives, they wish for their music to showcase another side of Kashmir - one that speaks of life after achieving Azadi.

What sets the duo apart is their uninhibited proclamation of their hopes, desires and ambitions beyond their political convictions and their steadfast belief in the role that hip-hop culture can play in helping young Kashmiris articulate the same. Hailing from one of the world’s most militarised regions, Straight Outta Srinagar are part of a generation that has known nothing but the Indian occupation and the human rights abuses that followed.

M.A.P // A.M.P

The M.A.P // A.M.P Music Library aims to create a repository of activist music, which will serve as an archive to amplify the reach of music as an expression and a tool of social and political activism. This library is an effort to bring together such voices from the region that may have gone unheard. In the process, we hope to create a rich and diverse range of activist music that will span all genres and generations of music and poetry.
