The late eighties heard a low rumble of a cultural breakthrough in the music industry in India. While the rest of the world had already begun picking up on an underground electronic sound, India was slow on the uptake. A lone woman traveled to India to discover her roots and realize the Indian connection to her soul. Falling in love with her motherland, she allowed herself to embark on a journey that would change her life, not only as a performer, but as an individual too. The calm, slow rising of a culture that was to change the way people partied in India, Ma Faiza was bringing about a revolution.
Moving in only one particular direction – upward, Ma Faiza was soon performing all the way from the sands of Goa to Ibiza. Not limited by genre, convention or margins of any kind, she has allowed cultures, people, and flavours to influence her and she has truly transcended into her own unique style.
With the ability and skill to smoothly jump genres and mix sounds, Ma Faiza creates a vibe that touches your soul and makes you want to move. Her sound encompasses her femininity and is a luscious blend of everything electronic and harmonic, with splashes of ethnic beats from all across the globe. Refusing to be limited by style or tempo she blurs the lines of the ordinary to create the extra-ordinary.
Watching this legend perform is impossible to do standing still. Her fierce passion shines through when she takes to her stage, seducing her audience in a give and take relationship so subtle, you could almost miss it. Performing for the masses that come to experience her music is a mutual concession. The energy and love that she sends out into the crowd during a show, is returned back by her audiences who thrive on her music.
Today, Ma Faiza is India’s No.1 favourite Electronica DJ, playing to some of the largest crowds in India and across the world.
Live at the High on Sunday, 3rd June at 8:30pm
