Madame Gandhi Spreads Positivity and Truth During Pride Month with Documentary Style Music Video for “Freedom” Single Featuring Trakgirl
Just in time for summer and Pride, multi-hyphenate indie electronic musician and activist Madame Gandhi returns with “Freedom,” a joyous docu-style music video that celebrates Gandhi’s definition of freedom and her state of well-being coming out of the pandemic. With its reggae vibes and healing message, Gandhi felt compelled to rework the single that was originally created for Spotify’s EQL campaign highlighting women’s empowerment in music along with co-writer and producer Shakari Boles (Trakgirl).
The video for “Freedom” directed by Madame Gandhi and Jared Bishop showcases how Gandhi brings her philosophy to life on a personal level in Southern California, reconnecting with people she loves while taking care of herself. It is a post-pandemic slice-of-life vignette that begins with Gandhi’s morning meditation, followed by surfing in Malibu, visiting a healer in Los Angeles’s fabled and mystical Topanga Canyon, and closing with an evening trail run.
Throughout the clip, there are pauses during which Gandhi and friends articulate their ideologies about physical, mental, and spiritual health and well-being, and the importance of being present in the moment.
An acclaimed musician, accomplished singer/songwriter, in-demand speaker, and respected scholar, Madame Gandhi focuses on creating music that inspires, includes, and uplifts people from all walks of life to be their better selves. In Gandhi’s holistic worldview, true freedom springs from “returning to nature, living in accordance with your passions and being in service of a higher purpose.” “Freedom” brings these salient points vividly to life and invites audiences to follow suit.
