In Praise of Horses
Added by oralliterature
The lyrics state that if you praise a lama’s horse then you will be successful. Only a few elderly people can sing this song currently.
This recording comes from the Ya ri a bsod Collection by Sha bo don 'grub rdo rje and Skal dbang skyid. The collection contains fourteen songs collected in the grasslands of Amdo (northeast Tibet) in the area where Sichuan, Gansu, and Qinghai provinces meet. The songs represent various genres, and were all composed by Ya ri a bsod, an itinerant bard, in the early twentieth century.
