Remo Fernandes
Remo Fernandes (born 8 May 1953) is a pop/rock/Indian fusion artist and playback singer from the state of Goa, India. His musical work is a fusion of many different cultures and styles he's been exposed to as a child in Goa and in his later travels around the world. Such influences include Goan and Portuguese music, Sega music from Mauritius and Seychelles, African music, Latin music from Cuba and Nicaragua, the music of erstwhile European communist states, those of the dancehalls from Jamaica and Soca from Trinidad. Writing and singing songs in English made his success more distinctive in the context of the Bollywood dominated, Hindi language based, Disco music scene that was popular in the 80s and 90s. His music, reflecting life and socio-political happenings in India which every Indian could identify with, became popular largely with the growing, English educated, Indian middle class. A popular stage performer in India, he has also taken part in many music festivals around the world. He now writes and sings his songs in five different languages, English, Hindi, French, Portuguese, and Konkani.
