Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/songs-from-the-bardo?ffm=FFM_fda099cc7a46c46e001465defbf90751 Bandcamp: https://songsfromthebardo.bandcamp.com/album/songs-from-the-bardo All other platforms: https://orcd.co/songsfromthebardo 'Songs from the Bardo' begins with a bell ringing out once, twice, three times, as a ritualistic chant emerges from the dense silence. The collaborative composition by avant-garde icon Laurie Anderson, Tibetan multi-instrumentalist Tenzin Choegyal, and composer and activist Jesse Paris Smith is a guided journey through the visionary text of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, unfolding in an 80-minute ebb and flow of sound and words. 'Songs from the Bardo' is a transporting experience, meant to draw the listener into the present moment and provide a framework for inner exploration. Anderson, Choegyal, and Smith fuse modern compositional techniques with the mystique of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy to make these visionary traditions more accessible to a new generation of listeners and to reveal the ancient wisdoms contained within.
