Day 10 of our 2020 charity Advent Calendar, in aid of You Make It & Project Protect.
Ishaan Gandhi moonlights as Okedo, a moniker for his melting pot of heavy synths, dreamy vocals and enchanting drums.
On ‘Fairy Land’ he teams up with several Indian artists – Divya Lewis, Pranay Parti and Akshat Pradhan – as well as his classmate from Leeds College of Music, saxophonist Tom Kettleton, for a helping of lo-fi jazz-tinged broken beat.
This year we’ve chosen to split profits from the release between two charities, both of whom are doing important work within their respective fields.
The first charity is London-based organisation You Make It, a creative programme that offers young women access to tools, networks and experiences — group learning, 1-1 mentoring, work experience, start-up support and 1-1 pastoral support — giving them the confidence to transform their lives through personal empowerment.
The second is Nigeria-based initiative Project Protect, a subdivision of Burna Boy’s charitable NGO The Reach, launched to help provide financial, medical and legal resources for EndSars protestors during and after the protests.
Check the below playlist for all tracks in our Calendar.
