Janina Gavankar: Renaissance Woman

Jul 23.10 by Chachitron

When you heard the name Janina Gavankar, many things may come to your mind, but a musician with serious potential for a mainstream following was not one of them. The Indian and Dutch bombshell is mostly known for the powerful characters she has portrayed, such as Papi on the Showtime series “The L Word” and most recently landing a lead role in ABC’s “The Gates”.

Earlier this week I saw a ?uestlove tweet to Janina congratulating her on the new video…I clicked the link and this is what I found.

*video may cause spontaneous double rainbows*


Janina’s cover of Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown” is a hauntingly simple track that cuts straight to the heart. She recently released the video for the track, which was a collaboration with her friends, directors Caitlin Pashalek and Ian Lyman, and was shot in Los Angeles earlier in the year on the Canon 5D.

We hope that Janina keeps creating music for all of us to enjoy!
