ChaiTunes releases the first music video as a tribute to Assamese writer duo
After their last successful collaboration, 'Awaaz-speak up against sexual violence', Assamese musician duo Jim Ankan Deka and Queen Hazarika are collaborating once again for a new project Xaare Aasu - a tribute to Assamese writers Prof. Bhabananda Deka and Nalini Prava Deka.

Produced by Eastern Fare Music Foundation, and a concept created by Music Malt, Xaare Aasu is the first song in an experimental music series - 'ChaiTunes'.

Xaare Aasu is the first song in an experimental music series 'ChaiTunes'. The song draws inspiration from funk and jazz styles and has Shreyas Aarakshan in Drums and Harish Marriappa in bass from Bangalore, and Prateek Nalawade from Mumbai in guitars. Playwright and theater actor Suhit Kumar and blogger Divya Nambiar have acted in the music video. The music video is directed by Parmita Borah.

The lyrics of the song is based on poems by Bhabananda Deka and Nalini Prava Deka.

Every song in the Chaitunes series has a visual narrative and all the stories happen over cups of tea.

"This is just the beginning. We're trying to explore the culture of music and drinking in India", said Deka.

"In this season we will explore various genres of music and mostly work on inhouse and studio projects. In the future seasons, we will aim to visit different places and make music in those locations to bring out the distinct flavors of each place."

That certainly raises the curiosity level. The first song of this series Xaaru Aasu, featuring Assamese singer, is released and is available for viewing on Youtube.
