Sound of old tea factory machinery (funny imitation!)

Alan Lane, my dear friend and a retired tea veteran of Assam fondly remembers the start-up sound of the Lister diesel tea machinery of bygone days. Here is an amazing and ingenious imitation by two little Indian kids.  Please turn up your sound to enjoy. You won’t believe it! Thank you Alan, for sharing this lovely video.

    This is both comical and so real. I recall the diesel engines of Duklingia tea factory revving up to a similar crescendo. Thanks for sharing Shona and Love from Sydney, Australia.

      I though it was pretty realistic as well. These two chipmunks could easily get a job in a Hollywood sound studio!

    Lister diesel engines are used on irrigation pumps here in Australia and everyone I have shown gets a great laugh from this.
