Joi Barua: Music will cut throughPosted on 2/10/11
One of the important initiatives of INK is its INK Fellows Program that brings together amazing young people and showcases their work to the world. Joi Barua’s music never fails to touch the soul. At INK, he performed the Assamese song ‘Tejimolaa’, based on a popular Assamese folklore, from his album, ‘Joi: Looking out of the Window’. As Joi says, “Language isn’t a barrier, the music will cut through.” Enjoy!
About the Speaker
Joi Barua grew up in a sleepy town called Jorhat in Assam, the North East of India. He was gifted a violin by his father when he was four, and he fell in love with Music. The only music he has access to those days was a 30 minute friday slot on radio. His town had one piano, and no teachers, and his father had to cross the border and get him a keyboard from Bhutan. He has no formal training in singing, and is now making waves in the advertising, music, and film circuit in Mumbai.
