Audio Overview

This is a drinking song (chang gzhas) performed by the two youngest women (35 and 22 years old). In contrast to the songs performed by the two older members of the group, this song appears to be a popular song learned from a recording, rather than a song indigenous to Basum, passed down by face to face transmission. Note that the singing style is plain in comparison to the ornamentation of the two oldest singers.
