Quite enjoyable, and a good counterpoint to the Western-style music generally played here. This is exactly why I listen to Radio Paradise- variety, unique choices, and a wide ranging sphere of influences. If I wanted "classic" songs all the time, I'd listen to spoon-fed predigested playlists like those the Clear Channel Stations. Thank you for exposing me to a skilled and expressive singer. You just bumped my wishlist up a notch again *sigh*
 

I totally agree and just wish I could give this comment a hundred "thumbs up".
Easy to acquire a taste for this artist, hope to hear more.
Fantastic. less pop, stones, U poo and more quality, lasting music like this.
A for originality, but....
As much as I enjoy The Stones, DMB & any Beatles song...This is what makes me tune in! More - Yungchen Lhamo!

Glad this is on the list. Like many others here, this is part of why I listen to RP.
I KNEW when I heard this song played that there would be a multitude of negative opinions voiced. What IS interesting to me is how I read in many comments about a U2 or Beatles or Stones song how RP needs to play the different, not the normal \"classic rock\" tunes. Then, when you hear something like Yungchen Lhamo, you read complaints. Well, I say, MAKE UP YOUR MIND. If you want to be challenged, be challenged. Listen to something non western once in a while... learn how to hear the music between the notes. You don\'t have to like it, obviously, but until you can learn to HEAR it, don\'t judge it. RP SHOULD challenge listeners with music like this... please keep it up.
Hmmm... many polar opinions. I like it, but y\'know, whatever. But I think that one thing influencing the opinions is the fact that asian music doesn\'t use the same intervals in their scales that western music does. And therefore, we aren\'t \"trained\" to hear it as pleasant, or emotional, or anything... it just feels foreign. When the chromatic scale first started to be used in the west, many had very strong negative reactions to it. But now we are \"trained\" to not hear the slight compromise frequencies as dissonant... Just a thought. :wave:
I appreciate the opportunity (through RP) to hear this type of music. That said, I think once or twice is about all the times I'd care to hear this particular cut.
Different from the norm. If I was making a movie I'd use it as part of the soundtrack to set the mood. But since I'm not making a movie I'll just politely listen and enjoy the exposure to something less Western. Wish I knew what she was saying. Interesting side note - according to AMG she's appeared with Natalie Merchent.
call me uncultured, but i can\'t take this stuff. i give it a 2 just because i\'m sure it has some redeeming value to someone, somewhere.
Well, I don\'t know eff-all about \"World Music\". But I know this is some captivatingly beautiful stuff. Thanks for including it.
Hmmm... I like the way the comments about this song are either: \"This sucks\" or \"Cosmopolitan = Good\". I\'m in the latter camp but would point out that anything that broadens the experience and appreciation of music is a good thing, even if the conclusion is still - this sucks. :)
Sucks in a big way! :cry: Could not find the mute button fast enough! :frustrated: Where do you find this noise? :evil:

I\'m putting my hands over my ears during this one. Makes Yoko sound good,
Nice addition. It\'s all about the mix.
Beautiful music. I spent a great deal of my childhood living throughout Asia and as a consequence my sense of music, art, design etc. have been permanantly shaped by that influence. Please play more!
Oh shut up woman

How did know that When I checked her She WON the ARIA Award in 1995 of world music
This Is the very special music of PEACE Shaydy
This is what is so great about online music. We get to hear things that we might never hear even if we raided our friends\' collections. I love getting exposed to some of the more \"worldly\" music out there that you certainly won\'t find on my local Richmond stations or even on cable radio for that matter.
dreadful.
Great to hear this on RP -- the whole reason I listen is to hear rare gems I\'d never have known about otherwise, and this certainly qualifies. More world music please!!
Oh my aching head...... make it stop!
I'm sure that Yungchen is a wonderful woman and her support of the Tibetan refugees is admirable. This song would play marvelously on a World Music station.
Different, but nothing I would normally listen to or buy.
At first I thought it was Indian music, then I thought it might be Chinese music. Then I found out it was Tibetan, which is just about as right in the middle as you can get. I really like this...
very nice. thanks for exposing us to new music
\"born under the rule of the superpower, but was encouraged by her grandmother to learn and sing the traditional music — a dangerous thing, which, if discovered, could lead to torture and prolonged detention. \" Incredible. I love world music! Especially that of the far east. We hear so little of it here.
This is one of the reasons I listen to RP, to be exposed to music that I normally wouldn\'t seek out or come across during my regular day. Thanks, Bill, for opening us all up to the fact that what we call \"music\" is just a part of what is available from the cultures of the world.
