Obituary to Salai Sun Ceu
By Salai Tawna (04th May 2004)

Salai Sun Ceu ((1952 – 2004, Age-52), one of the most outstanding musicians of Myanmar, died on 7th April 2004 at Pa Thein General Hospital in Pathein, Irrawaddy division, Myanmar, suffering of a lung disease. After his memorial service at the Myanmar Baptist Church on 9th April 2004 at 13:00 he was buried at the Pathein Christian Cemetery.
To pay my respect to him and his family I would like to write a concise biography about his life. In January 14th, 2001, I and my wife had the honor to interview him in Pathein at Moe Set Thit restaurant about his exceptional musical career.

Exceptional in that he not only remains in our memory as a famous singer and guitar player but he also leaves behind a big treasure of meaningful songs which he wrote himself or recorded songs of the famous song writers and musicians, such as Salai Thuah Aung (Lum Bang) and Salai Bob (Thuk Lai), etc. The songs he sung were not only meaningful to his own people, the Chin, but he also managed to inspire thousands of people within and outside Myanmar.

He was born 13th January 1952, as the oldest son of four children of Pu Sang Rul and Pi Cia Hniang (late), belonging to the Zanniat clan, at Lo Cawm village, Falam township, Chin state. Already during his high school time (1968-70) he started to play guitar and later write his first song “I it hnak i si” in Zanniat dialect. In 1977, he obtained his B.Sc. in Zoology majoring Ichthyology at Mandalay University.

His musical career already started during his university time (1974) when he started, together with Thawng Uk of Lai Zo (Falam), to record at Panda studio in Rangoon (later Yangon) for the BBS (Burma Broadcasting Service) his Chin songs which were then broadcasted in the Chin Program. In 1975, Salai Sun Ceu sung two of his Burmese songs on the album of the most famous artist Sai Htee Saing and his band the Wild Ones “Kyi nat ba dawh” which became famous till today throughout the country (see the song list below). With the participation of Judy Chiang (Lahu) he produced in 1976 his first own album “Pa da ta lan, than ta lan” in Burmese with the Wild Ones and Aces Band. For the following album of Sai Htee Saing “Sig tha ya a luan” which was produced in the same year he composed six songs of which Salai Sun Ceu sung three. The song “Te u piat hma mani si chin” written by Salai Thuah Aung he also sung on this album. The three other songs he wrote were sung by Jumbo from Maymyo. In 1978, he produced his second album called “ထင္းခုတ္သမား” with the Aces Band. For this album he wrote 12 of the songs.

1981, Salai Sun Ceu got married in Kaleymyo to Kap Nuam (Nu Nu Kap) daughter of Lieutenant. Pu San Rang (late) and Pi Sung Zom of Bual Khua.

His wife bore him four children:
1. Mai Bawi Nuam Ting, born: 11th July 1982
2. Salai Phun Ling Thang (Thang Thang), born: 12th May 1984
3. Mai Bawi Nei Mawi, born: 28th June 1987
4. Mai Bawi Nei Rem, born: 9th October 1988

Together with Sai Htee Saing he produced in 1994 the album “ဆံုးျဖတ္လိုက္ပါ, ဆံုးျဖတ္လိုက္ၿပီ”.
Above that he skillfully played Chin traditional musical instruments, the Hlung (gourd mouth organ) and the Con Cing (wooden xylophone).

1996: (Sin than ni deh Mik tar - ရွင္သန္ေနတဲ့ ေမတၱာ) with Sai Htee Saing (Despite this album had been distributed in 1997, I was unable to get a copy because the master tape had disappeared.)
On top of these all, he produced many more Christian albums in Burmese and Chin and secular albums in Chin language of which, unfortunately, I was unable to lay hands on.

For many years Salai Sun Ceu was serving faithfully as a government officer. From 1980 – 1983 he was in charge of labour (luk tha hmu) in Kalemyo, Sagaing division. Then he was promoted in 1984 to be in charge of farming (Kyi kyat yi hmu). 1992 he moved to Kyaing Htung, Southern Shan state, where he served as an assistant fishery officer (Duh u si hmu). He was then transferred to Pegu, Pegu division, in 1997 serving at the same position. In 1999, he was promoted to fishery officer (U si a ya sih) and transferred to Pathein, Irrawaddy division.

According to my understanding, Salai Sun Ceu was the one in 100’000 (one hundred thousand) highly gifted artists of the whole population (48 mio.) of Myanmar. Not only for the Chin but for all Myanmar the departure of Salai Sun Ceu is a big loss. In his music and songs he showed his great love for his country. He always tried his best to encourage us to develop it. He will remain in our hearts and minds forever.

“U Ceu van cung in La kin puah sah rih tu de lai, kin kuat leh tu de maw”
U pat hnak thawn,
Na nau Salai Tawna
“U Ceu please keep on composing songs in heaven and send them to us.”
Respectfully,
Your younger brother,
Salai Tawna

PS: Please apologize for writing Salai Sun Ceu’s obituary in English. However, I felt that in order to make it understood by as many people as possible I decided to write it in English, rather than in one of the Chin dialects.

Yours sincerely,
Salai Tawna
4th may 2004
