Resulting in an unique original style. Ravi Shankar meets Sphongle and Hilight Tribe, you could call it. In the meantime BMI Goes India has built up a great live reputation and has played at a wide range of festivals in their home country Netherland and abroad, such as Mysteryland, Xperience festival, Psy fi, International Day of Yoga, Visions of Paradise, Tribalanga and Festival Mundial. The brothers have earned their spurs in all kinds of bands and projects. Barend is a trained sitar player. In order to refine his playing on this Indian string instrument, he lived in India for six months, where he was taught every day by a classically trained sitar master. He also took lessons from well-known Indian sitar players who were on tour in Europe. Barend is also a gifted and experimental bassist and guitarist. Maarten is a dance producer. He takes care of the electronics. Live he also takes care of the visuals that provide a unique total experience.
