Joi Barua’s Latest Song “Riders of the Mist” is on Assam’s Pony Racing Tradition

Musician Joi Barua, who hails from Digboi in Assam, has released a song titled “Riders of the mist” that focuses on the ponies and the racing tradition.

For close to 130 years, the horses from across the Brahmaputra river have come to race at The Gymkhana Club, Jorhat, Assam. This is a moving story of the solitary horses, the Mishing riders & the tea plantation owners who have kept a fantastic tradition of horse racing, alive.

This song ‘Riders Of The Mist’ is the Official Soundtrack for the Documentary, which has captured this whole phenomenon/tradition.

‘Of all the things i dream
here and there
this and that
happy and sad.
Of all the things i dream
earth and sky
wind and fire
my passion and obsession
pain and pleasure.
I’ll be looking for you
i’ll be looking for you
beyond my planet
beyond this blue..’

Composed, produced & sung by Joi Barua
Guitars: Pawan Rasaily
Mixed & Mastered by Abani Tanti at Geet Audiocraft Mumbai.
