From a camp in the outskirts of Kathmandu, Howard Kaufman captures the essence of Tibetan chants. Kaufman gathers songs that are "excerpts from much longer versions of both Eastern and Western Tibet". While some of the songs are religious in subject, others praise the beautiful land, food, herding and other aspects of rural Tibetan life. Liner notes include a brief introduction by Kaufman along with song explanations.
