MIRI
group of youths have come together to form a Mising rock band called Miri to reach out to the younger generation of the Mising community through the medium of songs.

RD said the band believes that music is a wonderful medium to spread the message of love, peace, goodwill and harmony.
He added that the word Miri represents the tune used by a mibu(priest in Mising Language)while chanting mantras, As a band, Miri is an ensemble of musician from different musical backgrounds.
