Merlin D'Souza

soul yatra

Weaving magic with her music, Merlin D'Souza instantly has everybody under her spell. With loads of talent, she adds her own brand of originality to every piece she composes. Her music is mystical and mercurial with parts of soulful seductiveness, poetic genius, feminine intuitiveness and occasionally 'Merlincholic'. Familiarity breeds contempt, she says, and elegantly side steps the tried and tested path. Instead, there emerges from her keyboard something fresh and exciting. { more }
