DIMAPUR — A book titled “To pay or not to pay musicians: For labour rendered to churches,” written by Zhalie Nienu was released on Friday at Aria Café in Pfutsero town.

An update from Baptist Theological College (BTC) stated that the book discusses many important matters concerning church’s responsibilities towards musicians and musicians’ responsibilities to the church. It is divided into three sets that included voices of the musicians from Nagaland and beyond.

It ends with an additional bonus set with recipes for church sound engineers and performers.

It added that much of the book’s concern is drawn from the personal experiences of the author, Zhalie Nienu. As a professional guitarist, he has played with several renowned bands and musicians, particularly in the pacific coast of the USA. He played regularly with the Christians rock band ‘SEED,’ which produced three full albums.

With his M.Div. degree from Berkeley School of Theology, California, he has also served the church in various capacities as music pastor, youth director, pastor and currently leads an English fellowship in Pfutsero town.

The book was launched by Moatoshi Jamir, pastor of Pfutsero Ao Baptist Church.

The book launch programme was chaired by Wekhrou Thele, owner of the Café and Jubal School of Music and Arts, while an invocation prayer was said by Krishna Ramauli, pastor of Nepali Baptist Church and closed with a prayer said by Vepakho Vese, CBCC youth secretary.
