Max Cabral twisted wake-up the Konkani way!!
You wake up listening to the latest hits doing the rounds on your music list, topping charts. In few days you hear our Konkani songs with the same background score. Very rarely you find Konkani songs with original music score that create and form a lasting impression like the Golden melodies.
And here out of the blue, you come across a talented artist with the love for Konkani in his blood. Max Cabral sings the latest hits of English & Hindi by translating the same in our very own Konkani language. More like a Konkani Karaoke. Now that is something different, no copy just the translation of the top hit numbers in our mother language and of course with a swag.
Had a chitchat with Max Cabral, who has hit the right notes and currently his Konkani versions are going viral on social media platforms like Facebook & Twitter .
Check out the selected viral videos while we know more about him.
Getting into the Football Fever!!!
Max Cabral is our Goan chap hailing from Dona Paula, the idyllic rocky tourist hub of Goa. Having moved to London for better prospects but definitely not forgetting his roots, he has always strived to do something connecting him to his motherland. On the personal front he is working under The Gordon Ramsay team at Heathrow airport (LHR), apart from which he loves cooking, an actor on Konkani stage and now into composing and singing songs.
How did the idea of Konkani Karaoke videos evolve?
I Love Goa, I love my Konkani languange and it’s my love for Konkani, my Goa and my people. I always tried to do something different since my young years school/college , be it my roles in Tiatr or church programs.
And this was one of it, everyone on Facebook or YouTube were translating songs in their languages so I thought to myself, Why not me? Goa is all about music and Konkani songs is what Goan’s are fond off. Making it easier for all ages to enjoy the Hollywood & Bollywood latest tunes in Konkani and I’m very happy with what I’m doing.
What was the feedback after you published the videos on Facebook?
For starts, I was scared that people would make fun, comment bad but it was just the opposite, so many Likes, comments & shares. I was happy to see people enjoying it. So many requests, so many fans its an awesome feeling. And definitely my friends supporting me as well.

Who has been your biggest support?
My biggest support is my wife Tanya, without her I don’t think this would be possible and the continuous support from my family. Whatever I am today is because of my mother and glad that my wife is there to support my ventures.
What are your future plans?
I definitely wanna go back on Konkani stage, continue singing & uploading Karaoke songs in Konkani. And in future want to release an audio or VCD with the love from my Goan music lovers.
Here’s Wishing all the very best to Max Cabral. Looking forward for more and more fun karaoke .
