They are young, raring to go and love India! Members of English female band High On Heels, who performed in the country for the first time, are so fascinated with the serene atmosphere of Goa that they are keen to open their studio here.
They feel the low cost of living and increased demand of crossover music in the country, totally work in their favour.
The band, established in 2002, comprises five young girls - Kelly Marie Patmore, Kelli Leigh Henry Davila, Rosie Harriet Langley, Holly Rowena Madge and Yasmin Lulua Ogilvie.
Patmore says she has been behind the console as a disc jockey (DJ) in India many times before, but performing as a band is a different feeling.
"I am DJing in India for quite few years but its first time that High On Heels are performing together in India. I have spent quite sometime in Goa and it is probably one of my favourite places in the world. So, for us to be asked to come here was exciting," Patmore told IANS.
The London-based girls find Goa a relaxed haven.
"As soon as you get off the plane, the sound of the birds, the atmosphere, it is all very serene. London is really fast moving and we have a crazy kind of schedule there, but here we just slow down and it is very relaxing. There is something magical about this place.
"Personally, I feel I need to do something for this place. We would love to open a studio here. It is a good idea as the cost of living is cheaper for us here. It is more cost effective to be here than in London," she added.
The band, formed by Paltmore, is known for their high-octane performances across the globe. They performed here Thursday night as part of the ongoing India Resort Fashion Week (IRFW).
