Kiran Gandhi (Madame Gandhi) is an award-winning artist and activist known for her uplifting, percussive electronic music and positive message about gender liberation and personal power. She has been listed as Forbes 30 Under 30 in Music and BBC 100 Women, and her mainstage TED Talk about conscious music consumption has been viewed over a million times. “Waiting For Me,” shot in Mumbai, India, which focuses on radical expressions of joy, color and freedom won the Music Video Jury Award at SXSW Film Festival in 2021.

In June of 2022, Gandhi completed a Masters in Music Science & Technology at Stanford University’s CCRMA where she spent time in Antarctica sampling the sounds of glaciers melting to create empathy and awareness around climate change.

Her third studio album, Vibrations, mixed in Dolby Atmos, was released in 2022, on Sony Masterworks. Gandhi actively collaborates with other female and gender-expansive people in the industry.

Her song “The Future is Female” was featured as the theme song for the 2022 Apple TV+ docuseries “Gutsy” about the world’s boldest and bravest women. She also composed the original score for the documentary “Periodical” that premiered at SXSW 2023. In June 2023, she was awarded the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Abe Olman Prize for excellence in songwriting and leadership.

Kiran Gandhi’s mission is to use music as a medium for a message about positivity, personal expression and human thriving.
