King. Back in Nagaland, he used to play for Kohima-based rock n roll/blues band Heads and Tails, which played the first two editions of the Hornbill Festival.

Chetri, who is also part of Delhi-based blues band Big Bang Blues, has been performing solo since October 2013. As a solo artist, he primarily uses acoustic guitars and the slide in his sets. “I am not much into processors and other gadgets. I use both the glass and metal slide. Glass produces a warm and mellow tone, which a brass slide does not.”

 He is also looking forward to release an EP by the end of 2014.


Teesta Galway -

Her music is influenced a lot by the likes of Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and draws a lot of inspiration from the vocal style of Tina Turner. Primarily a folk and blue-grass artist, Teesta is mostly seen performing solo sets, but is an equally at ease playing as a duo or with a band.
Teesta Galway
Teesta's music is about what she grew up with and of what she is still growing up with. She writes about the people she meets and places she dreams of travelling. To her music is simple, mostly acoustic something a common man on the streets will understand Teesta's music is raw and threadbare.
