“Came across these singing kids during a visit to Ungma Village – one of the oldest villages in Nagaland. Four of them are siblings. I was awestruck by their beautiful song – and their strong voices! What they are singing is a song which is unknown to me. These kids learn songs of different dialects and tribes – on their own – as a fun activity. This is one such song they taught themselves.
They are from the Ao tribe, but this song is definitely not in Ao. Wonder which tribe’s song this is. I couldn’t walk away from their unusually beautiful song ; also look at how they sing it so effortlessly! Love their casual demeanor and their confidence!” ~ Toshiwapang O Longkumer (@toshi_soyimboy)
