It was around 4 o’ clock in the afternoon. “Beautiful” she said, as I pointed her to where the Tetseo Sisters were seated. It was easy to spot them seated behind the first row, the spirited colours of Chi Pi Khwü , the porcupine accessories and the three pairs of eyes transfixed to the show. I was backstage supporting my friend Aneeth Arora for the second time at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week in New Delhi, and she gladly accepted my request to invite the Tetseo Sisters. It was more than apparent that these folk artists witness the striking work of Arora, who’d soon be crowned “Boho Gypsy Queen” the next day at the official FDCI ‘Designer Mode Magazine’ review. We knew we were both gawking at them.

A week before the Delhi event, I had received an autographed CD from the Tetseo Sisters. A true collector’s item and a groundbreaking attempt. Every page in the inlay was poetry in motion. It was only after interacting with them that we realized how serious and passionate the Sisters were about the legends of Li, and why they wanted to carry forward the knowledge learnt from their elders. The sisters garnered some fans (including myself) in the péro stall as they honoured us by singing O Rhosi from their debut album aptly titled Chapter One: The Beginning.
Wonder Girls: Just showing off a fan mail from JYP & the Wonder Girls. Received this one in 2010 before Sunmi left the group. Yeah! Get used to it, I love K-Pop. The Wonder Girls have previously endorsed the Hornbill Festival in Nagaland.
