Bangalore based Assamese musician Jim Ankan Deka launches his debut Assamese single online, kicking off the upcoming launch of his album Timeless.
The music video directed by Parmita Borah talks about the magical clout of words that can connect even random strangers. The story in the music video is about two people who bond over poetry despite never having known each other.
‘The lyrics of ‘Xobdor Porisoy’ just occurred to me two years back as I sipped a steaming cup of tea on a rainy summer afternoon. It was gathering dust tucked away in a diary for quite sometime when, after a gap of two years I suddenly found it, and like ex-flame stirred unspoken feelings inside me. I worked on the music composition for a couple of days and things fell into place’, Jim recalls.
Although Timeless is his debut album, Jim Ankan is not new to the music scenario. Apart from live gigs and work in television, he is known for pioneering Eastern Fare Music Foundation, a state-of-the-art music institution in Bangalore, India.
The music video, Xobdor Porisoy, is the first Assamese language venture by the Bangalore based production house ‘Eastern Fare Productions’. Eastern Fare Productions is a spinoff of the noted music institute in Bangalore ‘Eastern Fare Music Foundation’ which has been producing some of the top ranking music students in the Trinity Guild Hall examinations since 2008.
The multi-lingual album ‘Timeless’ is scheduled for an October release. In the interim, the video has been made available online in websites like Youtube, Dailymotion and Myspace.
