David Breashears - Everest Journey
DAT #7

Katmandu, Nepal.

Four Sherpanis singing traditional Sherpa songs

* 00:30 - 4:18 - first song

ID: My name¿¿.4 Sherpas + singing [5:53]

My name is ¿¿Song about marriage + more songs [9:56]
End of Sherpani singers

DB Notes: Use the first song with 4 singers - re. Mountains, beauty, trees, Kumbu regions of Nepal. Thinking of using that song when ¿..found a small shrine outdoors where burn juniper for good luck and safe passage¿.Before I turned and left I lit a small fire of juniper for Rob and Scott, for their next passage in life. Was thinking about using that quote on tape #6 - and then use crackling FX of juniper, then followed by the final music to end the music. Lot of religion, spirituality, nature in this piece¿¿Hear crackling and popping, and blowing on the flames. Then the voices of these singers.

13:00 END of DAT #7
