Yari Aso Songs

These songs were recorded by Shawo Dondruv Dorji and Kalwang Jyid, members of the Tibetan Endangered Music Project. All songs were composed by Yari Aso, a Tibetan itinerant singer who lived approximately 100 years ago. He lived in the nomadic grassland areas where current-day Qinghai, Gansu and Sichuan provinces meet. Digital Himalaya is delighted to host this unique collection of songs.
