info 

Music from Ladakh recorded during the making of the film The Song Collector (2014) by director Erik Koto, with additional material recorded by Bill Kite in 1992. Situated high in the Western Himalaya, Ladakh is one of the great cultural crossroads of Asia. For centuries, it sat at the hub of ancient trade routes that connected the Silk Road to India, Tibet, and Kashmir. This collection of songs is intended to offer a sampling of the range of Ladakh's folk music. These songs also celebrate the great folk artists of Ladakh. This album comes with a full-size insert containing historic photos, song lyrics, and liner notes by Erik Koto.
