    "Coming Home" is part of series 2 of the Real World Gold re-issued albums - released 30th July.

    With an ever-lengthening list of admirers that includes Michael Stipe, Billy Corgan and Natalie Merchant, Yungchen Lhamo is a true ambassador for the traditional music of her Tibetan homeland. Having lived in exile since the tail end of the 1980s, it was her a capella songs that won her international attention. 1998’s Coming Home broke the mould, with acclaimed producer Hector Zazou adding a rich palette of instrumentation to further enhance Yungchen’s expressive voice. But the backing is sympathetic and unobtrusive, never casting the singer’s great art into shadow.
    “That calming voice hangs in the air like smoke” – Q
