Hornbill International Music Festival gathers music lovers
Serving as a testament to the popular understanding that music is a universal language, which has no barriers, boundary, people from all lifestyles, old, young, and children came out to celebrate the Hornbill International Music Festival 2013 at the Naga Solidarity Park at New Capital Complex Kohima on December 1, braving the onset of cold winter chill.
Achieving Musicians of Nagaland which included the seven finalists of the Naga Orpheus Hunt 2013 Lejim, Sentila, Alem, Abenla, Nokali, Yapangtola and Minunsang entertained the crowd with sweet melodies, winner of Kids for Fame 2013 Alovika presented a special number. Clueless Attention, Winner of NSACS brand Ambassador 2013 took the stage which brought the crowd to their feet with some of their favourite numbers. Another Achieving Musicians of Nagaland and winner of NSACS ZERO Merry Making presented a different taste of music where the crowd were entertained with some unique sound and guitar techniques.
Special feature band Biuret from Republic of Korea took the centre stage. The band is one of the most popular in Korea and has recently toured China, Japan, U.K, and Australia and has recently performed at New Delhi before coming to Nagaland. Biuret presented some of their originals in their own dialogue but as music is a universal language - music lovers and the musicians jump up to their feet and dance to their music. It was heartening to witness with pride to see the tourists from the mainland India and abroad enjoying the Hornbill International Music Festival.
It may be worth mentioning that way back in the 80s and 90s that there were only some Naga musicians who had good musical instruments. The declaration of music as an industry by the present DAN Government and the hard efforts of Music Task Force Nagaland under the guidance of the Director, MTF Gugs Chishi who himself is a talented musician has given a platform to perform and explore for the young talents.
