v/a "Streets of Lhasa"

This is a more usual kind of Sublime Frequencies record. The compiler went to Tibet's capital and recorded a load of random street musicians. There is also one track that seems to be just ambient noise – maybe the sound of fire crackling, maybe people playing some kind of gambling game or something. Anyway, the real star here is the terrifying three-year-old child who sings on a couple of tracks here. His belting voice is unstoppable, even if he sometimes has to be prompted with the words for the songs.
