New Zealand based singer-songwriter Evan Sinton aka Maala is “over excited” about his maiden India tour. The 22-year-old musician, who will perform at the final gig of his three-city tour of India in the Capital tomorrow, “doesn’t know much about the Indian audiences,” but is “super excited” to be in the country.

“As a kid, I always wanted to travel the world, and so I am excited that I have finally managed to come here because people keep talking about India. It’s been a great experience so far, and people here are extremely hospitable and I am super excited to perform and interact with the crowds over here,” he beams.

Through the course of our conversation, Maala reveals he loves performing in front of “loud crowds”. “I haven’t been around the world much as yet. I have been to a few cities in the US, and they are pretty loud, which is awesome. I am hoping to get the same response here as well. Crowds back home are generally low on energy, and yes, they are awesome and I love them, but I love loud crowds, and I am really hoping that it’s the same here,” he adds.

Maala got instant fame with his electro-synth pop music and his global recognition burgeoned with hits such as Touch and Kind of Love among others. He is also planning to play some of his latest tracks at the gig, which will be a part of his yet to release second album.

“I didn’t do any show after summer last year and I was working on the second album since then. So, India is the first country where I am doing a show after that, and that’s why it becomes the first country where I’ll play some of the new tunes, which will feature in the second album,” he says.
