‘We have a spiritual connection with India’
English progressive trance group, Above & Beyond, has a special connection with India. Paavo Siljamäki (above, centre), one of the members of the three piece act, believes that the band has a developed a unique bond with the country over the years. “We love performing in India. One might assume that since we have performed here before, we will have an idea about how to go about our concerts in the country. Honestly, I have no idea how the crowd will be and I am really excited to perform here,” he says. The group will be on a three city tour — Pune, Mumbai and Bengaluru — as a part of VH1 Supersonic Arcade. “We have developed a sort of spiritual connection with India. It’s a beautiful country and it has helped us a lot. India was also closely related to our radio show — Group Therapy. So, we have a lot of good memories about the country and are excited to be back,” says Paavo.
