Please introduce yourself.
My legal name is Vishnu Quao, an exceptionally versatile creative artist known on the stage as Thefewmajority (VishnuExpress) in the Afro-pop reggae dancehall music genre.
How did you end up making music and how did your artist name come about?
Music has been an inborn gift I’ve been practicing since childhood, at an early age I loved listening to varieties of music, but anytime I sing or play I’m inspired to improvise my own lyrics.
Secondly, the phrase in the bible occurs to me in my deepest meditation, many are called but only few will be chosen, I won’t say life has not been fair to me, but life has thought me many lessons, how it feels to be left alone to make life meaningful on your own, when one is left with no other alternative than to keep his or her passion going strong to aspire for that desire dream.
How would you describe your music, it seems to combine a few different elements?
Listening to different kinds of music, I got inspired by many profound artists for example Bob Marley, Tupac, KRS1, then Fugeez, my very own E T Mensah, Teddy Osie just to mention few.
My music started from an environment where it’s a hustle to keep your game up, an unhealthy music community where hype is bought or attended to more than the real talent or upcoming.
This made the competition very hard, because I suit in almost any musical category and people easily relate to my creative essence, that made it difficult to come to the mainstream.
What is the best thing about being in a Afro pop/ dancehall artist?
I’m able to flip into any kind of music genre, I feel I’m made to suit any form of music environment.
The most memorable show you performed?
Performing at the global peace concert 2012 and sharing the same stage with Osibisa Teddy Osie, Steve Bedi and etc was just wonderful.
Tupac, Bob Marley, and Gentleman.
Tell us about your regular hang out? Have you ever had a gig there?
At the moment I’m attending school, learning to read, speak and understand the Finnish language but with my team if not Bar & Cafe Graceville Iisalmi, then Kahvila-ravintola Vieremän HulluMylly Oy, in all of the mentioned venues I have performed once.
Future projects we should know about?
I like traveling to unknown destination. We are still making music and we’re ready to make the music reach out to every lover.
I’m working on a music project with The prince of weed track title Africa, and we are planning on how to cover the video.
Secondly, I’ve been working on a track Favor with group member Snäfä from the Etelän Vetelät group.
Lastly, I can’t wait to get my unisex clothing line “VEM” to the people.
