This musical journey explores the essence of a truly independent woman's unapologetic desires, enriched by the depth of Indian rhythm and grooves. The essence of 'guilty feet' originates from the belief that every woman is entitled to love, appreciation, freedom, and independence without being burdened by guilt.

The music of "Guilty Feet" masterfully weaves Ridi's signature style, integrating the intricate rhythms of the tabla with contemporary beats of bass for an enchanting auditory experience. Throughout the composition, the tabla remains the primary instrument, with a rap element introduced at the bridge, drawing inspiration from the dynamic styles of MIA and Katy Perry. The second verse introduces the soulful sounds of the sitar while the electric guitar takes centre stage post-bridge, infusing the piece with a pop-rock essence. Accompanying the entire ensemble, the real trumpet elevates the track to new heights.

We’ve blended traditional instruments like the tabla with contemporary bass lines to create something that is both innovative and familiar. It's a light, fun song at its core, but it's also imbued with a depth that speaks to our shared experiences.
