The music videos of “Aei Maatite”, an Assamese feature film showcasing the problem of witch hunting in the state, launched recently by BOX music.
The films music has a predominant flavour of the Bodo tribals. It has been composed by eminent music director Bibhuranjan Choudhury while the lyrics are by the films director Sitananth Lahkar.
The instruments used in the film are very few with the siphung (flute), kham (drum) and serja (four-stringed violin) taking a precedence as the film is based against the backdrop of tribal Assam.
The emphasis is on folk music and it blends easily with the film giving it a haunting quality, said national award- winning singer Tarali Sarma, who has sung a romantic track in the film.
