Voices In Kisama [Music Video] – Abiogenesis


From Nagaland arrives Abiogenesis and, on “Voices In Kisama”, a song from a year ago, this instrumental piece features two new bamboo musical instruments, ‘bamhum’ and ‘tikzik’, which are displayed in this video with most of the footage having been shot during the Hornbill Festival held in 2014. While ‘tikzik’ is a percussion instrument that is played by holding it in one hand and striking it against the other, the ‘bamhum’ – which is the lead instrument on “Voices In Kisama” – is also a creation of band member Moa Subong who, along with his wife Arenla, are founding members of Abiogenesis. Although the ‘bamhum’ was unveiled in 2005, this wind instrument is probably receiving its due recognition now, especially on this track which utilizes a light production style that befits the instrumentation – guitar, drums, bass, and bamhum – that creates both an eclectic and ethereal sound. Combining moments of calmness with sections that have a swift undercurrent of beats, this simple, but haunting melody, suggests a move toward new age rather than world music.
