"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.
