The name “Invisible Children” refers to the large amount of children that are raised in slum-like situations in India. KSHMR has always worked to use his identity as an Indian-American to shed light on his music, so this theme sounds right in his wheelhouse.
Surprisingly, however, it was Tigerlily who came up with the idea.
“Tigerlily first sent the idea to Tiesto, who suggested that she and I work on it together. The project was already a great start,” KSHMR told Billboard in an interview. “I added my ideas and it came together pretty quickly. The name comes from a term referring to slum kids in India and places around the world where poverty is so rampant that people begin to stop noticing.”
Obviously, this is far from a happy theme, but the track is actually rather uplifting, shedding hope on a tragic situation. It opens with KSHMR’s trademark sound of that mixes in sitar and a bit of a Bollywood vibe before launching into a hard groove.Read more to watch the video:
