"Sounds of Tibet" Collection
Almost all the sounds were recorded by myself in Tibet.
A monk chanting on the backstreet near Barkhor to get some offering.
Many monks are chanting here in various styles.
song heard in Barkhor
Excellent song, but it was sung by the cassette-player of a tape-shop!
A shopkeeper of a Dharma goods shop was demostrating gyaling, a popular ritual instrument of Tibetan Buddhism.
She is trying to sell a kau, portable altar, to me. She wants 50 yuan. I say I'm OK with 30 yuan. I paid 40 yuan after 20 minutes' negotiation.
Monks' chanting, pilgrims' shouting, and vendor's "10 yuan, 10 yuan, 10yuan!". Chaotic, but ordinary everyday-event of the Barkhor bazaar.
chant of His Holiness the Dalai Lama
He chanted this short phrase before a speech for Tibetan.
In a small nunnery of Lhasa. They seemed to start chanting suddenly, just after I endered the hall. :)
In the big hall of Sera Me.
This sound is the time-signal for my Macintosh. :)
A girl from Chamdo is singing for me while pouring Tibetan beer.
It was in a picnic in Lhasa.
mani mani padme huuuuuuum
A little girl is singing Da-dron's hit-song "Nga-yi Dondrub Tsering"
in kidding way. In Lhasa.
-- song for beer
A drunken Khampa trader is shyly singing a "chang-zhe", celebrating the happiness of drinking more chang, Tibetan beer.
A Lhasa girl sings, "Lhasa girls are beautiful!".
kid performer singing with damnyen
Damnyen is Tibetan guitar. He is playing just in front of the Potala Palace. A tourist car passed by us, blowing a horn.
