Songs

 

Songs have always been with people. They speak about joys and sorrows, pay tribute to the gods and heroes, praise the beauty of the world, extol friendship, help to court girls and provoke boys, teach children, cheer up and move to tears.

They accompany us every day... almost everyone has a song that is close to his or her heart: it brings memories of people, events or a home which for so many is so far away.

 

We collect these old, traditional songs and add our own.

Here are some of our favourites from GD repertoire and we hope one or two will stay with you to brighten your day.

 

Let us begin with  classics..

 

CHOED-LU: (Offering Song)

After  milking the sheep, a nomad woman on the side of a mountain makes an offering  singing a song.

'The first offering, I make to the three jewels,
May the three jewels bless the world,
The second offering, I make to the Protectors,
May the protectors safeguard the world,
The third offering, I make to His Holiness,
May His Holiness life be long.'

Time for one  of the best pop songs

Lucky

A song by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat

Vocals: Legsang Choidhar Madhatsang and Chungdha

    

     Do you hear me, I'm talking to you
     Across the water across the deep blue ocean
     Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying
     Boy I hear you in my dreams
     I feel your whisper across the sea
     I keep you with me in my heart
     You make it easier when life gets hard

     I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
     Lucky to have been where I have been
     Lucky to be coming home again
    
    They don't know how long it takes waiting for a love like this
    Every time we say goodbye I wish we had one more kiss
    I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

    I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
    Lucky to have been where I have been
    Lucky to be coming home again
    Lucky we're in love every way
    Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
    Lucky to be coming home someday
(...)
