VIDEO: NAGALAND’S TETSEO SISTERS SING “BARSO RE”

What a delighful musical discovery this one  turned out to be. I stumbled upon Bollywood Republic’s new music video of Tetseo sisters from Nagaland in Northeast India.

In this video the sisters sing their version of “Barso Re,” by AR Rahman  from the film “Guru.” What makes this version unusual is the Northeastern flavor of Nagaland that is infused into the song by the Tetseo sisters.

The Tetseo sisters learnt to sing traditional folk songs of their community from their parents and have blossomed to become fantastic singers. Here is one of their well-known songs “O Rhosi.”
