Lhasa de Sela: 1972-2010

| Disqus Comments
Obviously out of the cultural loop, I became aware of Lhasa and her songs only upon the occasion of her death, after a long struggle with breast cancer, at the age of 37. And so life and death intertwine, making, in some ways at least, the distinction meaningless.

This haunting video, a dream echo, tells us something of what she was. I had no idea what I had been missing, but I
know that I miss her now.

UPDATE: (January 6) Blogger brebis noir republishes an article based upon an interview with Lhasa that she did in 2004--well worth reading. And reader Blues Clair offers some new Lhasa tracks--have a listen.
