1970s popular Jamaican-British band “Boney M” is on its maiden visit to India and the lead singer of the group Liz Mitchell is confident about the longevity of Disco music.
The band, who is known for hits like “Daddy Cool”, “Rivers Of Babylon” and “Ma Baker”, performed at a mall in Kurla here on Friday evening.
“It (disco music) can never diminish. Disco music has had its opportunity earlier and now the young people have taken it to another level. DJs are using our music and creating innovative remixes out of it. This is the way party is today. You can say, it’s a new type of disco now,” Mitchell told PTI in an interview here,”
The 63-year-old respected Pop/disco singer has never had her share of exposure to Indian music, but would love to collaborate with artists here if given a chance.
“I am not well-acquainted with the names of Indian artists. With the radio and Internet, Indian music is not unknown to anyone. There are so many wonderful styles and genres that are being introduced to the world. I would love to collaborate with artists here if the right opportunity comes,” she said.
Asked if she would like to visit any particular place during her India visit, Mitchell said, “I wish we had more time to visit places in India. But our schedule is very tight during this visit.”
