U180 Music Concert By LiveJam-Live @ Alliance Francaise(New Delhi)

U180 is back after a successful last year. As always as they say that it’s more than a concert, this time they came forward raising awareness and voice against "child abuse", yes the same topic which came into much limelight after the hugely popular “Satyamev Jayate” which is hosted by Amir Khan. Supporting the cause they have Barefaced Liar, Cindrella Prakash (of Satyamev Jayante fame) and their very own LiveJam Band playing for them and also a gang of bikers who called themselves "Bikers For Good" came forward. ("Bikers For Good" is a bunch of bikers who works like an NGO and believes in making a difference to the world on two wheels and thus trying to improve the reputation of the bikers in the country as socially responsible citizens)

Axl Hazarika_Interview_IMR

Not many must be aware about Axl Hazarika. Well he’s an Industrial/Avant-Garde/ Experimental musician from Guwahati, Assam and one of the pioneers of the genre in the North-Eastern region. Recently he released his second studio album ELEKTROKORE 1, which is in fact the first Industrial album coming out the region.

Also with Ryan Hazarika he released the first animated short film from the region. Earlier he was also associated with ELEKTROKORE. We catch up with him to talk about himself, Industrial music, his album and many more!

Emla Ci Vuole Ricetta Medica IMR: Hello Axl, how are you doing? From a ‘core’ member of ELEKTROKORE(the band) to releasing the first Industrial album of Assam ELKTROKORE 1 you have travelled a long distance. How would you summarize your musical journey so far?
follow site Axl Hazarika: Greetings, I'm doing good. Well till now I have been releasing my songs in the name of ELEKTROKORE. I actually consider it as a project rather than a band. Over the years many of my close buddies joined me and jammed around with my compositions.
But, not to compromise on the quality of the compositions, I never allowed anyone to intervene in my songwriting/composing process. I like to do it solely.

Overall, the journey has been satisfactory.
