The charismatic singing sisterhood from India!
Mercy, Azi, Kuvelü and Alüne Tetseo singing Vocals and playing the Tati / Heka Libuh !
The Tetseo Sisters have officially entered into a representation and distribution agreement with Wilderness Films India Ltd. We believe that the Tetseos' Li has the potential to reach every country in the world, through the universal language of music. The musically superior, many layered musical form of Li is one of the most complex and advanced forms of music to come out of Asia, and will surely make a mark globally, in a very short period of time!
Please contact us at wfi @ vsnl.com to take forward any discussion for an international recording contract or to feature them in world concert tours that we are currently lining up. Some of the largest recording labels have suddenly noticed their music and are getting in touch with us... This is India's newest traditional musical offering to the world. The Tetseos are going to be a big name in the months ahead...
Rinyielu's song. A song sung by a secret admirer.
No hanulu kuveminulu
Nenu bari, miso humole
Nace kusho, hanu lu mudo
Mudo bari, hazho ngo hole
Zhovo mudo, hanumi zulhu
Tsuzosahi hali tso ve ho
Oh my beloved Rinyielu! Lucky is he that finds your eye.
Desired and wooed by the choicest of men and bravest of warriors,
I don't stand a chance to receive your favor or even a glance.
My days and nights are decided by your random smiles.
If only days were longer and nights shorter,
I would work by your side forever, content.
Exquisite torture, a life without you, fair damsel.
And here I'll end this sad song to try a happier one.
Tetseo Sisters are four sisters with a repertoire of folk songs from Nagaland.
We sing our "Li" in the Chokri dialect of the Chakhesang Naga tribe of Nagaland and our songs are often accompanied by the age old Naga one stringed instrument, the Tati / Heka Libuh.
We are trying to keep the tribal Naga tradition of folk singing alive, and in our songs, we tell the stories of our people, their joys and sorrows, hopes and aspirations.
WFIL is proud to present the Tetseo Sisters and their music to the world.
