Kohima, Dec. 12 (EMN): Tetseo Sisters have released their first Chokri/English dissent/protest song titled “La té. Veté ho”(Stop! Enough!) in a collaboration album called #WeStandWithHer produced by Mumbai-based producer Bluesanova recently.

According to the band, over 15 musical artistes from varied genres across the country came together to launch a new album ‘We Stand With Her’ on November 3, 2020. The collective is showcasing their support for women everywhere who are facing sexual violence in public and private spaces.

The album is a collection of fresh dissent-soaked compositions in various languages including Hindi, English, Bengali, Tamil, Punjabi, Chokri Naga and Marathi.

The album #WeStandWithHer is available in all major music and video platforms.

The project is a creative collaboration between BeBetterCollabs, Little Sounds and Bluesanova.

The cases of violence against women has been relentless across all age groups and regions. It shows that the country is apathetic towards this and there needs to be a greater push for security of women in the country.

“It is a wonderful thing that Nagaland is considered relatively safer for women as compared to other states in the country. It is not true though that we are violence free and that is what we need to aspire for as smart citizens and a Christian state. We have always been speaking strongly against gender discrimination, violence and harassment having faced quite a bit of it ourselves. We recently had the misfortune of having to take a fellow Naga brother to task for his misdeeds online. This was an instance of violence against women with an aim to outrage our modesty with cruel words and unfair judgement resulting in slander, harassment and criminal intimidation online. However, we are glad that we have come to an understanding to withdraw our complaint in lieu of his sincere apology and guarantee of good behaviour. We are grateful to the law enforcement especially the Women Police Station Nagaland for their swift and efficient action,” said the Tetseo Sisters.

They added that they will continue to create awareness and encourage women and men to speak up for injustice and seek legal redress where necessary.

“People need to speak up for right and for fairness and encourage kindness and politeness. Let’s not be silent and tolerate injustice.  Let’s all make the world and the society a safe space for all genders and especially for women. Let’s lead the world in ensuring the safety and dignity of women,” Tetseo Sisters added.
