Speakeasy Kabaret

Kohinoorgasm (one word: ko-hee-noor-gasm) is the experimental pop music project of Josephine Shetty. As a mixed race, queer, desi artist, she seeks to expand the dialogue around multidimensional identity-based experiences by visualizing and performing commentary on complex histories across many mediums, including photography, journalism, music, and modeling. Her music layers hypnotic beats and sounds, with vocals in Hindi and English. Her lyrics are often repetitive and pensive, forging mantras into a sonic thought-scape and encouraging reflections on such things as self-love, resilience, anxiety, identity, and agency. Josephine is from Los Angeles, CA, and now resides in the San Francisco Bay Area.
