The year that was: 2011

Last year this city filled with pines and brooks witnessed a couple of amazing events. One being the “Cloud Confluence Festival” a platform where Shillong bands and musicians alike graced the stage to celebrate world music day, alongside the presence of 6000+ attendees rather music lovers. The second is none other than “Rebel County” an extravaganza worth underlining as definitive, which featured motor-bike stunting, B-boying and a band of solid repute from the Indian metal fraternity (Undying Inc.).

Going back in time to last year, Chameleon Press would like to put forward a rearview on these two particular events in its very first edition. Starting off, C.P would like to delightfully present a brief brush up of world music day party celebration “Cloud Confluence”. The first of its kind that was hosted in the city, thanks a bunch to ROCKSKI GROUP who was the sole brainchild of this magnificent joyful celebration. The celebration had started on  June 18, where  Shillong musicians distributed food packets to underprivileged children in the city.

The event showcased performances of both young budding musicians and bands along with more established bands of Shillong. In total, 22 bands performed and showcased their skills and talent with the microphone, guitar and drums on stage at the U Soso Tham Auditorium.

On the flipside, there’s a tagline that spoke so much volume towards the end of 2011 and i.e. “Music meets Throttle”. This is the tagline of “Rebel County” another of Rockski Group’s initiation. Rebel County for those not in the know as yet; is all about rebelling for a cause and yes peeps! It is…were not joking around here. The event was organized to raise concerns for the environment and by what was evident from the results of the turnout, this is one of the most effective and innovative ideas we have seen in a long time.

The roster included Li’l Demons (B-boying/BMX troupe), Freaky Bikers (Shillong’s premier Bike stunting outfit), metal monsters A Night of Dead Romance, along with the assault of 11th Hour, rock ‘n’ roll lads Tarik, metal band Death on the Horizon, death/grind powerhouse Plague Throat and modernthrash metal band, Undying Inc. The youth also pledged to spread awareness about various environmental concerns.
