An Artist Redefined
- Aesthetically appealing and compelling, Inside is a pleasant departure from Subani Moktan’s usual style of songs and music
Jun 17, 2017-
I always like to keep an eye out for path-breaking Nepali music videos, and Jazz Productions has been able to continually surprise viewers with their quality and execution.
Subani Moktan’s Inside is yet another Nepali music video that proves that one does not need to hike to Chobhar and shoot between the sparse trees to create an “international standard” music video.
Inside is very different from Subani’s past songs, but it has the taste of her signature airy yet strong delivery and vocal technique.
A lot of people have compared it to Sia’s music videos because of Kripa Bajracharya’s Maddie Ziegler-style interpretive dance choreography and performance.
But, I think it is a bit unfair to compare every interpretive dance video to Chandelier or any other Sia-Maddie collaboration.
The video begins with Kripa crouched down, distorted almost, in hospital scrubs and ballet shoes. She is ready to dance, looking determined in her boxer braids, and dance she does.
The entire music video is her dancing and her expression against different but equally aesthetically pleasing backdrops—whether in the forest, industrial tracts, vast open dry lands, or picturesque little houses that could have been in Cinque Terre but for their colour scheme.
The video is simple, but the choreography is very emotive. In fact, it is Kripa’s performance that holds the viewer’s attention throughout.
