The film highlights the journey of music tracing its evolution across cultures, tribes, generations and more. From the ancient traditions of headhunting tribes to the musical renaissance in Nagaland, the documentary takes the audience on a voyage of musical anthropology.

Rahman who has produced the film comments, “The film is very special to us, as it throws light on the beautiful state of Nagaland and highlights the rich cultural and musical history it contains. Rohit and I are looking forward to the premiere and showcasing it to the audiences in Melbourne.”
