Tibetans ROCK. (and rap.)

This is how Vajara feels now…

Most traditional Tibetan music is religious in nature, reflecting the deep influence Buddhism has on the history, culture and daily life of Tibet. There are chants, mantras, and a lot of low, resonant drums. Of course, with so many Tibetans living in exile and with Tibet itself becoming more modern, global styles have begun to blend with, and even supplant, traditional music. Today Tibetans rock (as we see with Vajara in this video for “The Way I Feel Now”), rap and sing luscious pop music in front of aerobicizing dancers just like the rest of us.
