A Blue Skinned PAV4N Roams Holy Ground on ‘STASIS'
The U.K.-bred Indian origin hip-hop artist from erstwhile group Foreign Beggars has now made Goa his home and has a new avatar

JUST BEFORE the world effectively closed its borders and heavily limited travel, rapper PAV4N (born Pavan Mukhi) was in two minds about where he should hunker down. Born in Dubai, raised in the U.K.’s hardcore grime and hip-hop scene and now living in Goa, he decided to pick Dubai. Safe and sound, over a call from his home, he mentions that he actually moved to Goa in January this year. “It was the first time in 20 odd years that, well, we weren’t touring and I didn’t have to be anywhere in the world,” he says.

As Orifice Vulgatron, PAV4N ran rampage with pathbreaking hip-hop group Foreign Beggars for nearly two decades. They called time in 2019, which all added to PAV4N having the opportunity to think about what’s next. He says, “Everything kind of converged at the same time; moving country, the group finishing, starting a new project. This is the first time I’ve actually got a stretch of time, where I can actually go and be on my own, be shanti and set up the new chapter.”
