Panaji: Bringing together the music of two worlds, Goa will host 'ZimaFest' - India's newest live musical festival that will witness a confluence of Russian and Indian music at Candolim beach.
"The festival will be a host to various world's best DJs and bands like Alisa, Dolphin, Parikrama and DJ sets by Karsh Kale, Mara, Kohra, Janux, XP Voodoo, Christ Burstein FT, Victoria Bourke, Bhavishyavani Future Soundz FT. M. Mat. It will be held from January 24-25," Chairman of the festival Vinod Ganjoor said here yesterday.
He said the festival will be a soulful confluence of music, energy, food, sea, shells and everything and will serve music lovers a quality time with friends and family.
"We intend to deliver a fun, cool experience and a wider repertoire of sounds than is the norm nowadays. We have tried-and-tested bands like Parikrama and Alisa who have huge fan bases, hip bands like Madboy/Mink and F16s, and world sounds from Farafi," he said.
The electronic stage will boom to the sounds of champion crowd-pleasing DJs like Karsh Kale, Avalon, and Kohra, Ganjoor added.
The festival was launched as 'Great Live Music' in 2013 where the spotlight was on musical talent across genres.
By the end of January 2015 Goa will absorb new-wave sounds that combine loud, piercing chords of rock performances and moving, melodic vibrations from DJ sets of the EDM (electronic dance music) scene, he added.
Ganjoor said the festival presents a dichotomous mix of a classic all-round music festival that has Live and DJ performances at the same time starting a new trend in the Indian festival environment.
