This summer, I've realised how much Tamil media is starting to come about. I think a lot of the Eelam diaspora Tamils are coming to the age where they have grown up, have some security in their lives, and are beginning to reflect on their Tamil identities so that they can work out who they are...

A lot of these media producers and artists seem to be in their late 20s and may be in London, Toronto, Switzerland


I've recently found 2 brilliant podcasts:

Dash the Curry
Banana Boys (A RiskyFox production)

Books:
Tamil Tigress, by Niromi De Soyza (nom de Guerre)
Various books by Shyam Selvadurai, including Funny Boy and Cinnamon Gardens
Island of a Thousand Mirrors - Nayomi Munaweera
Gorilla

Television & Youtube:

Basement Reels
Dayan Shan
Romesh Ranganathan

Music:

M.I.A
Navz47
RolexRasathy
Yanchanmusic
Clich-A

Artists:
Freda Banks

to be continued.. but please add some more if any others come to mind...
I'm going to describe these creators's pieces in more detail soon.

I used to only listen to UK/American hip hop music, however I started listening to more tamil music recently. I've found a few tamil artists that I enjoy listening to and I'll give a link to a song I like:

Teejay: https://youtu.be/4-MD6iFmS0w
MJ Melodies: https://youtu.be/PsvpN13zx8k (One of my favourites)
Arujan J: https://youtu.be/MVHedQBaXQA
Ahashe: https://youtu.be/icgd25SKGIE (I love the style of his music)

This singer here is tamil, but he sings in English:

These are some tamil artists that are from UK, and rap in English.
Clich-A: https://youtu.be/TXCFkrpq2x4
S Loco: https://youtu.be/S6B1O7grdtA
Panamay | Theva (Tamil Grime): https://youtu.be/bocjBLz9bV4
IC9: https://youtu.be/Rsy_QiU3yog

Can't think of any more in the top of my head right now, but there is plenty more music created by western artists. All the people I've linked are all located around England.
