Bodpa Tso

Album: not on an album (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Running to around three-and-a-half minutes, this song in his native Tibetan by Kalsang Yarphel is one of a number that has landed him in hot water with China. Like other songs in the same genre it is a call for national unity and to speak the Tibetan language. It could also be interpreted as a veiled called for violent revolution, at least that appears to be the position of the occupying power. >>
