The Cajon Diaries : An initiative by Irom Singthoi
The Cajon Diaries
The Cajon Diaries is an initiative by Irom Singthoi with an attempt to bring different artists and musician together to spread the universal themes of peace and brotherhood through the social media.
The goal of this project is to cover as many artists as possible ranging from the state level to national, and to reach out towards their wide fan base throughout the powerful social media like YouTube. This project will be fresh attempt at creativity unlike what we have seen so far on stage shows and gigs that are held time to time.
The project will consist of powerful episodic videos that will promote creativity in regards to the theme of Peace and brotherhood.
In each episode, I will be taking a musical journey with an artist, alongside taking a discussion that will express his/her views regarding the themes of Peace and Brotherhood, on how we can go beyond our differences and the obstacles faced by the society and bring these values on our lives. There will be a jam session in each video, where the artist will perform a song and I will be jamming along by playing the musical instrument Cajon.
The project will give a room for discussion about the artist, and will cover his/her take on certain issues like drugs, and how we can encourage music and art free from drugs. The artist's opinion on how we can try to resolve conflict amongst different ethnic groups or society and promote peace and brotherhood with music will be expressed.
To have variety, there will be group activities and coverage of different styles of art. Entertainment and presentation of positive outlook of art will be attempted in this project.
However, the videos will be set on the backdrop of the issues facing by us and the reality of our existence i.e the conflicts and clashes we are having on daily basis.
The sole purpose of this project is how projecting and ideal to the viewers on how we can still build hopes and dreams despite all the issues we are having in the stark reality of our present life.
The first episode will be releasing on 30th of September 2016 on our YouTube channel and so on every episode will be released on the end of every month with different artists and different jam session on the video.
