Brooklyn-based musician Shilpa Ray has a lot to say about politics in America — an attitude reflected by her songs, which draw on contemporary social and political issues for inspiration and rock out in the face of hypocrisy, peer pressure, and casual ignorance.
Something Shilpa Ray doesn’t have a lot of? Funds. So she turned to Kickstarter to make a music video inspired by the recent controversy over US Senate candidate Todd Akin’s remarks on rape. Yesterday, Ray launched the video into the world, bringing a touch of black humor to a serious debate.
