It won’t be wrong to call India Edward Maya’s second home. Europe’s well-known EDM sensation who is in Mumbai yet again to perform at Phoenix mall in Kurla tonight was all smiles talking about his Indian connect, something that is evident in his very name Maya which means magic. The man loves India and our popular Bollywood music which he feels has more soul and heart unlike Hollywood which he believes has none.
“Hollywood music is without any soul and heart. The concept of God in music is non-existent. Here in India, Indian and Bollywood music is so full of life, soul and heart. God exists in Indian music,” explained Edward.
Talking about his love for India, Edward said, “Believe me, India has great magic on me. It is the heart of spiritual civilisation on earth. I am a practitioner of yoga and am greatly influenced by Sri Ramakrishna. I conduct my life according to his teachings. Spirituality and music are related. Everybody need to awaken themselves through music.”
Edward is also desirous of collaborating with Indian artists. While he is in talks with Himesh Reshammiya and Kanika Kapoor for different projects, Edward promises though it could take some time, the same would definitely happen. “India has many talented music composers and I definitely wish to work with them. I am also very familiar with Indian instruments like sitar, tanpura and others. This is why I want to make music here in India,” said Edward.
