WATCH: Ms Mohammed – ‘Pandora’

Musician and activist Ms Mohammed has shared a video to accompany her latest single ‘Pandora’, and it’s a direct challenge to anyone who dares to suppress the feminine in all its forms.

Taken from her critically acclaimed EP Alibi, ‘Pandora’ brims with relentless riffs and thundering percussion which reflect the strength and endurance of all the women Ms Mohammed features in the video. We recognise Madame So, Kat Five of Feral Five, and Zel from VODUN; but we’re looking forward to discovering more about the other brilliant women who prominently feature throughout the footage.

Talking about the video’s themes, Ms Mohammed explains: “We are sold limiting ideas of what it means to be female. The feminine is still derided in all cultures, still frowned upon, still synonymous with weakness. Truly celebrating the feminine would bring about the revolution that is so desperately needed. The Future is Femme!”

Ms Mohammed founded the Clit Rock movement in 2013 as a way of speaking out against female genital mutilation. As a champion of cross-cultural tolerance and an out queer artist who advocates for LGBT rights and visibility, Ms Mohammed is challenging prejudice through her music. We are happy to be her allies in this fight for equality.

Track Of The Day: Ms Mohammed – ‘Alibi’

Ms Mohammed (formerly known as Dana Jade) is not one to suffer fools gladly. As both a musician and an activist, she confronts xenophobia and Islamophobia head-on, to challenge pre-conceptions about race, gender and sexuality. Born in Trinidad and of South Asian descent, her guitar-wielding persona is equal parts exotic Goddess and entrancing vampire.

Her track ‘Alibi’, taken from her recent EP of the same name, is full of thumping, exotic dhol drums, surrounded by fuzzy, bluesy guitars; all of which lead the listener down velvet and gold-lined corridors to Ms. Mohammed’s lair – a prospect which is simultaneously thrilling and terrifying.

Ms Mohammed founded the Clit Rock movement in 2013 as a way of speaking out against female genital mutilation. As a champion of religious and cultural tolerance and supporter of LGBT rights, Ms Mohammed is challenging prejudice through her music – and we are 100% behind her endeavours to promote tolerance, acceptance, and freedom of expression.
