Music Video: "The Call of Unity" By Namgyal Choetso

High Peaks Pure Earth has translated a music video by Tibetan singer Namgyal Choetso titled “The Call of Unity”, taken from her second album “Uncles” which was released on August 26, 2013. The whole album can be seen on YouTube here.
This video marks a change of pace in the music video series with a female singer in the spotlight this week and also as the song is rather cheerful and upbeat! However, the themes of unity and reunion are familiar ones in contemporary Tibetan songs. Namgyal Choetso has in the past sung a cover version of Phayul Mayul originally by exile Tibetan artist Phurbu T. Namgyal and Phurbu T. Namgyal’s song “Jelyong” was also the basis of this song “Let’s Go Together” by Dekyi Tso.
This is music video number 39 translated by High Peaks Pure Earth since the Wednesday music video series started just over a year ago. Be sure to 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 “The Call of Unity”, enjoy!

Brothers and sisters of the Snowland
If you wish for world peace
Unite hand in hand
And move forward in advancement

Brothers and sisters of the Snowland
If you wish for freedom and happiness
Unite hand in hand
Generate courage and confidence

Brothers and sisters of the Snowland
If you wish for the joy of a reunion
Unite hand in hand
Reaffirm one’s pure and true nature
Unite hand in hand
Reaffirm one’s pure and true nature

Brothers and sisters of the Snowland
If you wish for world peace
Unite hand in hand
And move forward in advancement

Brothers and sisters of the Snowland
If you wish for freedom and happiness
Unite hand in hand
Generate courage and confidence

Brothers and sisters of the Snowland
If you wish for a joy of a reunion
Unite hand in hand
Reaffirm one’s pure and true nature
Unite hand in hand
Reaffirm one’s pure and true nature

Brothers and sisters of the Snowland
If you wish for a joy of a reunion
Unite hand in hand
Reaffirm one’s pure and true nature
Unite hand in hand
Reaffirm one’s pure and true nature
Unite hand in hand
Reaffirm one’s pure and true nature
