Why do you have do you have that weird stage name, Ena Marley?
With my closest friends, we create a group called “Ena Marley and the Buccaneers”. All of us we took the name of a Buccaneer regarding our personality. I’ve chosen Ena Marley from “Elaine Marley” the Governor of Monkey Island, a video game from Lucas Arts that blow my mind.
My own creations are honest work that comes from my heart and my unconscious. It has a strong presence of piano and storytelling and talks about general concerning of the human being, sometimes in humorists way, sometimes in a deeper one.
Now, I am working in my third album. It talks about Identity.
I feel specially inspired by thinkers and philosophers Musicians: Chilly Gonzales, Hazel Scott, Ella Fitzgerald, Stavros Lantsias, Tim Minchin, Fazyl Say, Maria Joao Pires...
I came to India to do an internship and work in the movie “Kadakh” of Rajat Kapoor as AD and in the Department of Music.
I think that the Nouvelle Vague in India (if you consider to called it like that) it’s huge movement of artist and thinkers that is opening India to the world, as well as creating a huge new wave of understanding reality in the contemporary world.
India has been a big root of Storytelling, Philosophy and Music that creates a perfect environment for a beautiful and deep artist work.
