Cartel Madras is a Calgary-based hip-hop sensation shaking things up across the city, country and industry.
Hailing from South India, sisters Contra (Priya Ramesh) and Eboshi (Bhagya Ramesh) are rappers now being hailed by fans and eager listeners-on as they develop varying narratives for coloured woman and deliver them in explosive and captivating ways. Sexuality, identity, freedom, race, colour, and gender are some of the recurring themes that listeners can expect to explore through their music.
Guaranteed to bring the party, their signature sound fuses the rap stylings of the South and trap and filters it through a strong female, though not necessarily feminine, voice.
Always catchy and more than sometimes provocative, they invite you to join the Cartel.
