The recording was done by Alem Alia at Tribes Studio) and cinematography and editing have been done by Vito Sumi of Reckless films/ Newlife Studio.
The song is a mixture of contemporary pop and Sumi Naga folk song.
During the release of the album, Alobo Naga said, “I had this idea in my head for a very long time about local singing groups (Sumi). Most of the songs were very monotonous, follow the same pattern, styles & melody since a very long time. So I thought why not try to encourage them to write songs and compose in different styles too.”
“Last year, this women folk from Chekiye Village came over to me for a crash course in contemporary singing. I trained them for a week, most of them were amateur and didn’t have much idea about music or singing,” Alobo Naga added.
This year he composed this song and started this ‘tiny project’.
“This is an experimenting project of mine, hope you will be blessed through this song,” Alobo Naga further said.
