Audio Overview

A drinking song (chang gzhas) in six verses, sung in unison at a slow tempo, and said to be 'from the old society' (i.e. an old song, predating the 1950s). As with all the songs of the Duma group, it was taught by the oldest woman to the others, whom she identified as her neighbors rather than blood relatives. An explanation of the lyrics follows the song in the full recording.
