Music from Tibet – Kalsang Yarphel

Kalsang Yarphel, 38 years-old, is from the Makig Dara township in Machu County, north-eastern Tibet.

On 14 July 2013 he was arrested by the Chinese authorities after he organised concerts and sang songs about Tibetan national pride.

Since that time he has been held without trial or formal prosecution in a detention centre in Chengdu. (From Free Tibet) See other musicians here

Tibetans
by Kalsang Yarphel

Tibetans, we learn Tibetan, speak Tibetan, it is our duty to do so
Tibetans, we unite, unite all three areas of Tibet together
Tibetans, we being brave, being brave reminding ourselves that years are mixtures of happiness and sorrow
Tibetans, we express our joy and woe, thinking of the future of Tibet, we chase our dreams
Tibetans, we hold national pride, march forward proudly shoulder to shoulder
Tibetans, we work hard, we are the future inheritance of Tibet’s new generation
