Konthang in the northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya is known as the whistling village as each residents' name is a unique song.

Visuals from September 26 show the locals communicating with each other in an amazing whistling language.

The tradition begins where the mother composes a tune, known locally as "Jingrwai iwabei", for their child.

This song will become the child's identity among the village and only the locals are able to recognise it.

India's Ministry of Tourism selected the village for entry into the World Tourism Organization's Best Tourism Villages.
