Sounds of the Himalayas by Tom Vater and Willy Wysoudil (video)

Austrian painter and fellow chronicler of the world Willy Wysoudil writes about his 15 minute video clip from the Nubra Valley in Ladakh:

“In the village of Diskit an archery competition is held for two days in July each year. Teams from several villages shoot bows and arrows at stationary targets before retiring to song and dance, chang (local beer) and tsampa (roasted barley flour).

The music was recorded by the journalist and author Tom Vater in 1997. It was our first work together and resulted in this beautiful cd album “Sounds Of The Himalays”. I put it together with footage I had from a mask dance in a Buddhist monastery in the Nepalese Himalayas in 2006. May peace prevail on earth! Enjoy this view into a complete different world!”
