Abiogenesis is a folk-fusion act that hails from Nagaland, India. It’s no surprise then that their sound can be exotic.
Abiogenesis reinvented version of folk music is called “Howey Music.” Blending Naga folk elements from India and modern music, the result is offbeat, unique, and completely enchanting.
Supporting their new style of music, and enhancing the cleverly-shifting melodies of the modern guitar compositions, is the addition of the newly invented Bamhum. That instrument is the invention of Abiogenesis’ Moa Subong. The Bamhum’s eerie lingering tones bring an otherworldly quality to the band’s sound and highlights the group’s fresh take on a classic genre.
The band's action-packed shows and positive do-or-die attitude are already getting increasing notice around the globe. Abiogenesis has performed in five countries: India,Thailand , Russia, Bhutan and Myanmar. They have performed for the Royal family at the Indian Embassy, Thimpu, Bhutan on Indian Independence Day 2011.
