I actually put these songs up yesterday for about an hour, then decided to take them down. Partly, it was because there were some errors in the text that I had written here, and partly because, well, considering the other things I’d posted here of late (all that good stuff from the 1940s), I thought the transition might be a bit jarring. But then I got a note from Harvey, who managed to catch the post during the hour it was up, saying that it was a shame I had taken it down. So, I have decided to revise this post and put it back up – but don’t blame me, blame Harvey!
Anyway, yes, this is another Lal Salam, from Nepal, the place where there was a very serious communist uprising not too long ago.. But the songs are so sweet! And by the way, I found this just the other day, completely by accident (though I think I might have found and posted a song from here before, a long time ago)…
P.S. Here’s a good related article: Nepal’s sex symbol is Maoists’ new face.
