New Music from Tibet: Waterfall of Youth - Dhondup Gyal


Following on from the huge popularity of their music video "New Generation", High Peaks Pure Earth has translated another song by Yudrug called "Waterfall of Youth - Dhondup Gyal".

The song was uploaded onto their blog on November 27, 2010 and is a paean to writer, poet and critic, Dhondup Gyal (དོན་འགྲུབ་རྒྱལ་ -  Don rgrub rgyal). Dhondup Gyal was born in 1953 in Chentsa (གཅན་ཚ་ gcan tsha, Amdo, located today in Qinghai province) and is widely considered to be the father of modern Tibetan literature. Dhondup Gyal wrote under the penname of "Rangdrol", meaning self-liberated. This is indicative of his limpid nationalistic bent and can be taken to have both a Buddhist meaning and modern political connotations. The title of Yudrug's song is taken from Dhondup Gyal's groundbreaking 1983 poem "Waterfall of Youth" (ལང་ཚོའི་རྦབ་ཆུ - lang tsho'i rbab chu)that caused a sensation when it was published, both for its radical literary innovation and bold nationalistic sentiments.
