“We are called to come together, to give our best and do our most. Life rolls out with song and dance, one for every new day. I am not the best but I will give all of me. I hope the same of you. With songs on our lips, joys on our face and friendship in our heart.” O Rhosi
We sing our "Li" in the Chokri dialect of the Chakhesang Naga tribe of Nagaland [India] 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.
Cepho Celho Lizo’ is a song about love; unrequited love.
A woman remembers her first love, her memories refreshed by the cherry blossoms.
They remind her of the days when love was ripe and beauty hers.
But his heart was never hers and the pain is sharp even now.
Yet, there is hope for a happier song and new blossoms year after year.Official Music Video of ‘Cepho Celho Lizo’ | Available at Indihut
