Four visually impaired young boys and their mentor from Meghalaya formed the band named ‘Light after Dark’ whose performance is a treat, amazing and inspirational. Their renditions are just as good, even better may be than any bands performing live on stage. Their challenges are forgotten as their music takes over.

Here are 5 facts you must know about this special All-blind band from Shillong in Meghalaya:

#1 Zawma Sailo, the founder of the band  who plays the guitar and keyboard joined Jyoti Sroat School,Bethany Society to teach the physically challenged children music in the year 2007. The school band consisted of several students learning music despite their disabilities. He took notice of few boys who had good listening skills or as he mentioned “good ears for music” and guided them to brush their skills leading to the formation of the band LAD (Light After Dark).

#2 Dilbertstar Lyngdoh (19) plays the bass guitar in the band, Hilter Khongpai (21) from Pynursla plays the drums, Remiki Pajuh (23) from Jaintia Hills holds on to his guitar with pride and Wanlamphrang Nongklhaw (25) from Shillong was a drummer with latent talent for singing.

Zawma says that what he liked best about the boys is that all they cared about was enjoying the music. They mostly play for charities and events where they get invited.
