Abiogenesis is a multi genre act that hails from Nagaland, India. With folk-fusion as their unique speciality, they create Indigenous and tribal sound in the most modern way making it exotic and beautiful to listen to, a sound never heard before. Each and every song or music explains the untold stories of Nagaland. It is not only entertaining but also a learning experience. Their exploration and experimentation resulted in evolving a new form of World music called Howey music. Howey is a fusion of Naga and other Indian folk with various forms of modern music. Another special feature of the band is the invention of a new wind bamboo musical instrument called bamhum by a band member Moa. This (the bamhum) novelty brought about a huge change to how Abiogenesis sounds today. It became the leading instrument of the band with Arenla playing the lead Bamhum, and Moa playing the harmony. Moa received the National Award from the President of India for his invention of the Bamhum, Moa has invented another Bamboo percussion called Tikzik which is a bamboo percussion with multiple sounds.
Abiogenesis has Performed in 5 countries: Thailand, India, Russia, Bhutan & Myanmar including an exclusive performance for Bhutan’s Royal family on 15th August 11 and to 160 Consul Generals at the Raj Bhawan, Mumbai on 16th November 2011
