International accolade for Assamese musician
 

GUWAHATI, December 29: Bangalore based young Assamese music composer, songwriter and singer Jim Ankan Deka, won the first ever International Music Video Award by an Assamese musician for his Hindi–Assamese bilingual musical album Awaaz—Speak Up Against Sexual Violence at the recently concluded Mumbai Shorts International Film Festival 2013. The album contains music as a creative protest against all kinds of sexual violence against women by taking ghastly 16 December Delhi gang–rape as a metaphor, which had been solely written and composed by Jim Ankan Deka and rendered by several musicians from across the broad spectrum of Indian and international musicians. The video was directed by Parmita Borah. It is the first time that Assamese music has been given an official international award by an international jury.

Jim Ankan Deka, who hails from Guwahati, was a self learner in musical instruments and had been performing from the age of three across the North East Region. Apart from music, Deka has also been associated with film–making and has been a part of several documentaries that includes a documentary on Assam Sahitya Sabha, Srimanta Sankardev and under–production Moi Eti Zazabor based on the life of Dr Bhupen Hazarika. He was also the part of an Assamese musical band called Prahar in late nineties and brought out his first musical album Tumi Kowa Kothabor.

In 2008 he ventured into multinational documentary film production making his directorial debut with an Indo–Canadian documentary film Nagaland – Journey Through the Choir of Clouds. In 2012 he scored the music of a tribute album called Timeless, which was dedicated in memory of Bhupen Hazarika, Bhabananda Deka and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Currently, Jim Ankan is busy producing music and making documentaries, apart from training aspiring young musicians from his studio and foundation in Bangalore. This was stated in a press release.
