Raise The Tibetan Flag, Children Of The Snowland
by Lolo

Album: Raise The Tibetan Flag, Children Of The Snowland (2012)

  • In spite of its English title, this song is performed in Tibetan, and anyone au fait with the politics of the region will realize instantly that it was directed at the Chinese authorities. Written and performed by a singer-songwriter named Lolo, it was one of a number of songs that earned him a six-year sentence in February 2013 after he was convicted of "seditiously splitting the state." Harsh though that sentence may seem, he could have been executed! >>
