30 Seconds To Mars - 30 Seconds To Mars Record On Indian Mountain
Jared Leto and his 30 Seconds To Mars bandmates made the most of their recording trip to India by setting up a portable studio and working on a mountain top at sunset.
The rock group is currently working on a new album and recently flew to India to record some songs.
Frontman Leto has now revealed they enjoyed one special recording session which happened high above the city of Jodhpur.
He tells Mtv.com, "I was recording in India, and had an amazing experience over there, and came back with some really great material... There was one afternoon that we climbed up above a city called Jodhpur, we were on a cliff with a 2000-year-old fortress behind us. And they call it the blue city - all of the roofs and buildings are painted blue, and when you climb up this mountain you can get a great view of all of it.
"So it was about sunset, and I had a portable set up, so we started recording. I had an external speaker, and the kids started to hear this song I was working on. So they started climbing out onto the rooftops of the city, and soon they were scrambling up the side of this mountain, and before we knew it, we were surrounded by dozens of these amazing Indian kids, singing and dancing along to this recording process... it was really mind-blowing."
