Welcome to
Mahalakshmi and Emam's

Listen for free or purchase downloads

MahaMaya Band is an extension of Emam & Friends, the world fusion ensemble Emam started many years ago.
With the arrival of Mahalakshmi, adding her voice, compositions and keyboard, we decided we needed a new name for our band. So, in 2023, we created MahaMaya Band with the purpose of serving tasty and unique original music, to infuse our lives with a vibrant spirit.
Our music intends to transport the listener, one note at a time,
to the path of the heart.

MahaMaya Band is a cross-cultural collaboration with our very talented friends who have spent their lives dedicated to their craft. Their expertise and ease of expression, expounding upon the sentiments inherent in the songs, adds beauty to our compositions.
Each collaborator has their own cultural background and training; thus, each performance and album is unique.

Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy the music.

World Peace through World Music!
