(8 pages) I made How You Do Pua to remind myself to call my Pua (eldest aunt).

About the Artist
My name is Noah Gokul, and my artist and music act is called bindiram. I am from Oakland, California / Ohlone lands. I am a music producer & singer, an educator for healing and arts work, and a multi-disciplinary artist. My music is a reflection of my multiple identities and how I wish to connect to the world through storytelling. I am of Indo-Guyanese and Irish/English descent, and incorporate sounds of the Caribbean, South Asia, and growing up in hyphy era Bay Area into my music. I believe in the healing capacity of music and how it weaves together cultures and story. I believe in our intergenerational healing and creating radically different ways of approaching healing and living that honor indigeneity, collective wisdom, and our humanity. I create to connect, energize, and heal. I believe in reclaiming power to the workers and that relationship to land is sacred. I come from poor workers displaced from India and brought to Guyana, who created a relationship to the land through cutting sugar cane. The struggle of these farmers is intertwined with that of oppressed peoples against capitalism, fascism, racism, patriarchy+ around the world.
