Music Video: “Responsibility” By Yupo

2014-08-06 Yupo

After last week’s venture into the world of “Red Songs”, High Peaks Pure Earth is back this week with another great music video from Tibet. This song is by Yupo and is titled “Responsibility”.

“Responsibility” was performed at the Amdo Losar (new year) event “The Black Tent of Emperors – A Journey into Tibet Concert”. It was also at this concert that Tsewang Lhamo performed “An Offering to You” and Sangtse performed “I Have Everything”.

The lyrics contain many messages to Tibetan people to protect the environment, language and culture of Tibet from “outside” forces.

This is the 54th Tibetan music video translated by High Peaks Pure Earth since the Wednesday music video series started towards the end of 2012. Please go back and watch our other videos using this link: http://highpeakspureearth.com/category/music-from-tibet/

Below are the subtitled music video and translated lyrics of “Responsibility”:

Lyrics: Ralo Thupten Choephel
Composer: Yonten Gonpo

 

In the foothills of the prestigious snow mountains
The ruddy-faced Tibetans of three provinces
Don’t let the environment be destroyed
You are the owners of this sacred land

The devout Tibetan people
The priceless Tibetan language
Don’t let it be degenerated
You are the successors of our ancestors

The common wealth of the Snowland Tibet
The golden treasure house of culture
Don’t let it get into the hands of outsiders
You are the owners of the Snows

The common wealth of the Snowland Tibet
The golden treasure house of culture
Don’t let it get into the hands of outsiders
You are the owners of the Snows

In the foothills of the prestigious snow mountains
The ruddy-faced Tibetans of three provinces
Don’t let the environment be destroyed
You are the owners of this sacred land

The devout Tibetan people
The priceless Tibetan language
Don’t let it be degenerated
You are the successors of our ancestors

The common wealth of the Snowland Tibet
The golden treasure house of culture
Don’t let it get into the hands of outsiders
You are the owners of the Snows

The common wealth of the Snowland Tibet
The golden treasure house of culture
Don’t let it get into the hands of outsiders
You are the owners of the Snows
