YouTube Sensation Vidya Vox to Release Anticipated Second EP MAD DREAMS

Darpan News Desk Darpan, 28 Jun, 2019 11:03 PM

    Vidya Vox, the Indian-born American singer-songwriter and YouTube sensation, will release her second EP of original songs, Mad Dreams, on Friday, July 26, 2019. Since the launch of her YouTube channel in 2015, Vidya has amassed a huge global audience - over 600 million views and over 6 million subscribers - with her mashups of Western pop hits and music from her native India. Mad Dreams is the much anticipated follow up to Vidya’s 2017 debut EP of original songs, Kuthu Fire.

    Mad Dreams will feature five original songs that reflect Vidya’s dream of a blended world somewhere between India and America - a world that does not yet exist, but one that reflects Vidya’s vision of a place built upon multicultural empowerment. This hope for pride and unity that drives Vidya’s music making is born from Vidya’s own bicultural upbringing, and the struggle to balance two seemingly disparate worlds.

    Thinking about the inspiration for Mad Dreams, Vidya says, “Growing up in the West as a first generation Indian-American, I always felt like I was living a double life. At home, I was immersed in a traditional Indian culture, eating dosas, singing Carnatic music, and listening to A.R. Rahman, and the second I stepped on my school bus, I would eat pizza and listen to Destiny’s Child and Backstreet Boys. At school, I was an outcast, and felt embarrassed about being different. Mad Dreams represents a pivotal time in my journey to reclaim and embrace my bicultural identity while sharing messages of hope and empowerment.”

    Mad Dreams 2019 tour dates:

    July 20, The Teatro in Monte Casino, Johannesburg, South Africa
    July 21, The Globe, Durban, South Africa
    July 27, Honda Celebration of Light, Vancouver, BC
