This is just one chorus from the song:
His voice wake us up from the holy mountain
Yared's sistrum, 'mesenko', harp
Zion 'daughters' rise for 'mezmur'
Say holy and triune; praise His name

The word klezmer comes from the Hebrew words kle, vessel or instrument, and zemer which means song.

since the ethiopian language is semitic it is related to mezmur (amharic/geez)

The site is relatively new and its owner is most likely still looking for Indian and Ethiopian contributors.

You may want to contact the owner of the site:

http://erkohet.com/index.php/contact

Let him know that you are willing to work with him on getting resources from your tradition.  I would think he would be happy to have the help.  :)

actually, it would be nice if there was an OO hymns website that can compile all the hymns of every OO Church, comparable to the coptichymns.net website.

Most of the CD's that you can purchase in India, creates a fusion of Orthodox Chanting and pop music. There are very few CD's brought out with Orthodox Chanting in its pure form with no fusion with pop music. If you have Orthodox Chanting CD's in its pure form, then its worth sharing.

On this deacon's blog, you can hear a hymn from the Armenian ordination rite.  He recorded it during the consecration of three bishops:

I have to say, I'm usually not a fan of music made for spiritual songs, but this was awesome, and the singer's voice is beautiful.

Are there any recordings of complete and live Indian Orthodox Liturgies in english that can be downloaded online?
EkhristosAnesti:

Two youtube links that I found useful. It is celebrated by a priest who was born and brought up here. It is only small portion of the liturgy. But unfortunately I could not find full recording of the Holy Qurbano (Eucharist)

This is the chanting of Psalm (Mezmur) 91 and 121 in Malayalam. These two psalms are chanted as part of the Soothara (Bedtime) prayers of the Syriac Orthodox Church.
