Jambili…. Name derived from “Jambili Athon” a symbol or a totem that represents the five major clans of karbi community. Likewise  to the band it is about being  representative to the people who are voiceless and deprived of their legitimate rights to self determine. The songs talk about contemporary  issues of the society that needs immediate justice and attention.

Music…. Jambili don’t confine itself to any particular genre of music .It is a progressive fussion of karbi folk music with all the other musical style till jazz & heavy metal… since the band sings of freedom it believes in practicing freedom in  its music too. It is very much a protest band.

He has extensive training and was working with media production house (Trangerine Digital Entertainment) in New Delhi as an audio engineer.

Dhriti was born in the northeastern state of Assam in India and has been musically trained since the age of ten and exceptional at understanding the nuances of the various forms of folk and contemporary music. His fascination with sound and music took him to an Audio Engineering Degree from SAE (School of Audio Engineering) in Chennai. He then moved on to the holy city of Varanasi, the hub of Indian Classical music and spirituality, where he stayed for about a year learning, interacting and sharing ideas with local musicians as well as visiting musicians from various parts of the world. This learning period gave a new sense of direction and added creativity to his music. Dhriti has a deep love for the folk music of northeast India and finds his inspiration in nature. His upcoming music album in set to release by June 2008.His recent performances include ‘The Brahmaputra Beats’ at The India International Centre, Delhi and ‘The Northeast Festival’ at The Park, Delhi.

Dhritiman is also doing a unique and very first-of-its kind experimental musical project named “Rhythm of Northeast”, the idea behind the project is to create a database of all the folk instruments of the region of eastern Himalayas, comprising of the 8 northeastern states of India, with sound samples and also detailed explanation of the instruments along with photographs. This will be available to the general public in the form of a DVD along with a book and also a website dedicated to the folk music and instruments of the eastern Himalayan range.
