Bhutan - closest neighbor and sole heir to the mighty civilization and traditions of Tibet. These are the extraordinary recordings of the temple rituals and sacred ceremonies of the monks of Bhutan.
Recorded in the great monasteries by John Levy, this four CD set represents possibly the most extensive and important recorded documents of Tibetan ceremonial music ever undertaken! Invited by the king of Bhutan, Levy was afforded every facility for recording monastic music in the principal dzongs (great fort-like monasteries) of the Nyingmapa Order. The ethereal Polytonal throat chanting, the long trumpets, shawms and percussion instruments, the processional music and spectacular mask dances, Tibetan and Bhutanese secular songs and poems, all reproduced with incredibly sonic fidelity! A truly remarkable collection, this set is complete with four compact discs with extensive liner notes, photographs, and musical illustrations by John Levy.

Volume Four features performances on both Tibetan and Bhutanese lutes and fiddles, beautiful folksongs, and a part of a drama of Tibetan origin performed by a troupe of yak and cow herdsmen of eastern Bhutan. Includes extensive detailed original liner notes, photos and musical illustrations by John Levy.
