Appealing for unity through song

The Tibetan Song of Unity, first sung by Sherten in 2010, was a song that displayed the Tibetan people’s intrepid spirit in the face of China’s strong clampdown on all things Tibetan.

Please click here for the link to that beautiful song…Enjoy the lovely music! (The lyrics is given below.)

The Sound of Unity by Sherten
(Translation by High Peaks Pure Earth)

Amdo, Kham and U-Tsang all belong to the same family
We have a common destiny

Let’s all blossom together like flowers
Hand in hand in harmony

Hand in hand in harmony
Let’s step forwards

If you care about the future of our nationality
All three provinces should unite

Amdo, Kham and U-Tsang all belong to the same family
We have a common destiny

Tibetans of the land of snows
Unite as one!

Amdo, Kham and U-Tsang all belong to the same family
We have a common destiny

Hand in hand in harmony
Let’s step forwards

    Oh, that song reminds me of the music they played in a bus in when we went from Xiahe to Langmusi! Also, the style of the singer reminds me how was surprised when I saw that the some of the Tibetan youths in Lhasa wear a more Western and more rebellious fashion than the Chinese youth in say, Beijing, even though Lhasa is so much more remote! Thank you for posting this.

      I’m so glad it brought out some fond memories for you. Yes, I have observed that Tibetans in Tibet are indeed very fashionable and have a distinct style that is more akin to the west.
      For me this song gives me goose bumps every time I listen to it — how courageous and brave they are to voice their feelings so openly in Chinese-occupied Tibet, even as we in the free world think several times before expressing our true feelings.
