Notes and Editorial Reviews
Fate of the Lhapa is the award-winning film score for the documentary feature of the same name about the last three Tibetan shamans living in a Tibetan refugee camp in Nepal. The score features performances by the renown cellist and Grammy nominee Joan Jeanrenaud (Kronos Quartet Alumnus) and Tibetan Vocalist Tsering Wangmo. Haunting and lyrical sounds of Asian and Western Music merge to set the tone for a spiritual and mystical journey about an ancient healing tradition in danger of extinction.
"William Susman's score ...create(s) an atmosphere that amplifies the wonder, beauty and melancholy of the film's story and imagery. .. richly varied in orchestration and mood... Cellist Joan Jeanrenaud's expressive playing adds a
layer of soulful melancholy, and Tibetan vocalist Tsering Wangmo is especially haunting -- her keening contributes immeasurably to the score's emotional resonance."
