“Maarten and Barend control the dancemusic and the sitar.
This brings them to this groundbreaking dance.
An album full of diversity. Definitely worth a look and listen here!!”

Including Mysteryland, Solar, Festival Mundial, Mandala, Solstice, Novas Incident, Beyond, Xperience festival Waldfrieden and Psy Fi…. and much more!
In 2018 a lot is going to happen for BMI goes India and they brought their second album “SANSKRITIZED”. This stands for the mixing of old and new styles and that is exactly what BMI Goes India also does in their music. On this album they subtly bring a wide range of dance styles. From upbeat drum ’n bass, electro to psychedelic and world music and everything in between. The music is even more crystallized than on their first album. Live they will go one step further and they use a special decor with visuals. This is what makes you feel good and dreaming about a different world … as you dance the night away!
“I already call my favorite One Day in Dharamsala…
But On Ravi On Acid you mainly hear the electro that
predominates and for this song the dance lovers will
often press the repeat button.”
