D. Jason Fleming

Anu is a Tibetan music duo who, with this song, had a huge hit not only in Tibet, but across China as well. First released on 19 May 2017.

After listening to the song many, many times, I found a video with English subtitles, but... they were awkward. Though I don't speak Tibetan at all, I took those original subs, assumed they were a fairly literal translation, and smoothed them out to work better for English speakers without (I hope) losing too much of the meaning. The song has several Buddhist references, and the more specific ones I left intact, but the more general ones I altered to just general inspiration so they come across to a non-Buddhist audience.

I own nothing here, I'm merely sharing this amazing song in a way that I hope will help it find a broader audience.

Track 4 of 4.

Battle Flags (https://battleflagsmusic.toneden.io/), the moniker for artist Jack Budd, began as a project in stencil graffiti in an 8×10 room in Richmond, Virginia. The meticulously pieced EP Color Engine is its harrowing result. Recorded in his bedroom while attending music school at VCU, it is menage of rhythms stolen from pots, pans, shovels, empty kegs and living room chairs. Budd’s raspy delivery is as much calming as it is haunting.

As versatile and mysterious as its author, the album carries the mood of a smoky, latenight tango, lazy naps on a southern porch, or a sobering stroll through a haunted tool shed. And if that weren’t tantalizing enough, the listener is then black-bagged and dragged along to a Caribbean barbeque. Every possible piece of each instrument is utilized, much the way a French chef would appreciate the often overlooked uses of a pork shoulder.

The EP "Color Engine" was released 8 March 2010.
