TRACK LISTING

1. Apo Gaga (4:15)
There are thousands of children who have come into exile leaving their parents back home in Tibet. Most of them haven’t heard their childhood pet name that their parents use to call them by. One such pet name is “Apo Gaga”, a childhood name given to HH the 17th Karmapa Lama by his parents. Karmapa has been in exile since 1999 and hasn’t seen his parents who are back in Tibet since.

2. Dzomo (5:03)
A song inspired by Dzomo, the mother yak. I wanted to pay homage to all the amazing mothers who give the nourishment of life.

3. Beautiful Day (4:03)
And this too shall pass.

4. Highland Yaks (3:48)
Bansuri and viola become whistle and fiddle to add a Celtic lilt to this purely instrumental track.

5. BONUS TRACK: Gone Beyond (5:16)
One of my favourite Sutras – “Gate Gate, Pare Gate, Para Sum Gate, Bodhiye Soha”. Gone gone, Gone beyond, Gone father beyond, So be it!!
