W MUSIC CURATOR - DJ ARUN R.

No Music, No Life! This is the motto of Arun R, W Hong Kong’s  W Music Curator. We got the chance to ask him why is music so important to him? DJ Arun R believes that the word music translates to “art inspired by the muse”.  For him, music has always been a major part in his life and espeically in W Hong Kong, as it’s the music that brings such energy and vibe to the hotel experience, In a bar, restaurant, lounge or club, music plays an important sensory role: it can excite you, relax you, make you feel fuzzy and warm. It's simple – no music, no life, because without feeling, life is meaningless.
