Burma’s New Groove

The pop group Me N Ma Girls has released its latest single, ‘Girl Strong.’

Burmese girl-group sensation Me N Ma Girls won over audiences with their debut album, Mingalar Par, in 2011, and now they’re back with a new single. “Girl Strong” is an up-tempo dance-pop song, as catchy as their first hit (in English, “Give a Girl Time”). The five young women performed both songs earlier this month at the finale of the Women in the World Summit. After their song and dance, each stated her college degree (the most surprising: zoology) and shared a story of slipping past the censors despite wearing colorful wigs in one music video. Here’s hoping they push the limits again when they film for “Girl Strong.”
