Video Bishi – “One Nation (Under CCTV)”

Comments Off on Bishi – “One Nation (Under CCTV)”

 

Shot in and around South London and the Southbank, Bishi plays with the positive and negatives, and the prestige and performance of being constantly watched in a joyful yet sinister tone.The drum driven track also suggests celebration, aggravation and indigence. One Nation is inspired by a Banksy piece in central London – now painted over.

British born to a Bengali musical family, Bishi started singing when she was two years old. Her mother, an Indian Classical/Traditional singer enrolled her in a musical education. Trained in both Eastern and Western classical music, Bishi started piano and harmonium studies aged six and went on to learn guitar, bass & sitar in her teens. Her musical influences also include English folk and disco. Bishi began her musical career in The Sound Storm – an improvised electro acoustic performance art troupe led by London night club legend Matthew Glamorre and his long time collaborator Richard Torry. Bishi is also characterised by her glamorous and extravagant stage appearance.
