 ‘Choorile’ is a feminist reclamation of a Guyanese term used as a by-word for women perceived to be too loud or unruly. The song pays tribute to powerful womxn, most notably Sabiyha’s Mum. “She was quite strong willed when she was young, and whilst she didn’t let me act out growing up, she encouraged me to speak up and have my own opinions” says Sabiyha. “She’d ask me ‘Are you a leader or are you a follower?’ She was quite hard about that – she didn’t want me to just go along with what people were saying, and that’s what has shaped the way I am.” “Choorile” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.
