Goa Music

 
 
In Goa, music flows in the veins of the people there. A person does not need an occasion to break into a song. Be it a festival, wedding, birthday party, or just friends meeting over a cup of tea, music rules every occasion. The traditional music of Goa has acquired some elements from western music also. This was because of the Portuguese rule in this state for two centuries. The folk music of Goa though still retains its charm and identity and at the same time, smoothly blends the western tunes and pitches. Over the years, the Goan trance music has gained popularity among the crowds.

Goa is almost synonymous with trance music and one can see many trance parties taking place on the beaches of Goa. This transition took place somewhere around 1960 - 70 when many hippies came to Goa and made it a hot tourist destination for the like minded. Since they enjoyed trance music, they introduced the same over there too. Goa is also much influenced by western classical music and listens to the likes of Bob Marley, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, etc. The current generation listens to rock and hip hop music religiously. Some famous forms of traditional music of Goa are discussed below.
