After eight years of preparation and production, Tibetan singer Rongzhong Erjia recently released his latest album, The Mystery of Tibet - The Song of Shepherds, in Beijing. The album is the renowned singer-songwriter's third, after Plateau Red and The Mystical Jiuzhai.
The new album was inspired by the Tibetan tale of King Gesar, which is the world's longest epic. The singer-songwriter traveled throughout the Tibet autonomous region to learn local herdsmen's songs. Every song on the album tells a story about Gesar.
The new album has two versions - one in Tibetan and one in Mandarin.
