Each day, I would make my way walking alongside the beautiful pine forests from camp to the festival ground and watch bands performing on the 2 stages – Danyi (Sun Stage) and Piilo (Moon Stage). And the best part was.. there were no parallel performances at different stages. One performance at a time! So that you don’t have to run around to watch your favorite band performing.
All the bands performed with high energy and full enthusiasm. I loved the vibes of Oorka (band from Chennai), Nubya Garcia (UK based Jazz band), Komorebi (from New Delhi), Blue Temptation (from Shillong) and everyone’s favorite: Mono of Japan. All of them had different music genres and their own uniqueness which will compel you to groove with every beat they play. A special mention to Oorka specifically, as they survived a near fatal accident a day before their performance while coming to Ziro. Hats off to them as it didn’t reflect in their performance that they went through an accident, instead their energy was contagious. Though I don’t understand Tamil but the magic of their beats made me dance.
Here are some of the clips to give you a gist of what I experienced:-
