Baha Nehan Agia


We are all in this together.




What is music to you? What does it give you?

I give.

What is your music dream?

Dreaming is for those who are asleep.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Eliminating greed, laziness, lust, pride, anger, envy and gluttony.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

The sound of silence in between breaths.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Those who are in touch with fusing art, philosophy, science and religion.

What inspires you to make music?

Music simply is and we are all antennas when we empty ourselves from ourselves to be vessels full of light and, consequently, sound, which is light slowed down.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Prepare to die and you will know precisely how to live.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I am nothing yet everything.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Most lyrics reflect/embrace lust and pride or desire disguised as love. Lust takes and chastity (pure sexuality, actual love) gives. Lust is devoid of virtue, authenticity, only craving to feed itself and only itself, while chastity gives without expectations or attachments and oozes virtuosity and love, naturally embracing philanthropy of sound.

What do you think of Drooble?

It is, like anything else, what one makes of giving without attachments.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Nothing. Here is why: Frustration is a form of anger associated with desires. Freedom from attachments liberates one from anger, which is frustrated desire. Become content with cause and effect and accept what the effects bring while being cognizant of the causes. We live now because of what we have thought, said or done in recent pasts. We will live soon based on what we think, say or do at this very moment. The here and now is all that exists, from moment to moment, the past being gone and the future just a pointless fantasy beyond practical steps based on what can be accomplished in the here and now. Cognizance of this simple fact brings acceptance of what freewill we have to be utilized to the fullest, right here, right now.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

At this point, all I can do is educate musically and otherwise, both specifically and generally.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Understand and comprehend how giving is more important than receiving, otherwise known as being a better person all of the time, to the fullest degree possible. Bringing out the best in others is the most important aspect of what music is about, which will be the inspirational magnet for success in all avenues, internally and, consequently, externally. Create the appropriate causes and the corresponding effects will naturally follow.
