With music by Ap Dawpel – The father of traditional Bhutanese music.

Ap Dawpel believes that his instrument the dranyen** is home to Yangchenma, the goddess of music. The dranyen belonged to my ancestors, who passed it on from generation to generation. According to them, the music produced by strumming on a dranyen is not music, but the goddess Yangchenma herself who sings. After 52 long years, Ap Dawpel made the decision in 2007 to stop playing the dranyen.
