Dr Vikuosa Nienu expressed pain at the passing of a special friend, Khrielie Kevichusa. “Khrielie was one of the most talented people among the Nagas. His gifts in music knew no bounds. While he excelled in several musical instruments, his love for violin and guitar remained his favorites, with skill and inspiration few Nagas can match. He has touched many people’s lives with the beauty and power of his music. So much talent in one individual, a musical genius. What a loss!” Dr. Nienu said.
“I have known most of the Kevichusa family but was closer to the boys, and Khrielie was the one with whom I had memorable moments. I directed the Choir for the Nagaland Crusade and a special Banquet I conducted in 1980 in Kohima. He also led choirs for many other important events, including the Billy Graham Evangelistic Crusade in 1972 in Kohima,” he said while adding, Khrielie’s legacy of music will continue for generations to come.
