Legendary Performances from the First Studio Recordings of Traditional Bhutanese Vocal Music

In 1968 the Third King of Bhutan sent the finest singers in his kingdom to Calcutta, India, to record Bhutanese vocal music for the first time. For decades these pioneering recordings were largely unavailable. Now 15 classic songs from the historic Calcutta studio sessions have been digitally restored and remastered, fully revealing the sublime beauty of Bhutanese tradition.
