Sisi Sima (སིམ་སིམ་སི་མ།)

Two years ago, Dan Zanes and I met a great Tibetan musician, Techung, who had just released his own family music album of original and traditional Tibetan songs. He graciously introduced me to this fantastic jump rope song. Sisi sima means “gentle, like a breeze,” and describes a set of motions involving a peacock and other birds that can also be performed by the jump-ropers. Ms. Sonam Lhamo (ex tipa) and three young students from her Tibetan Sunday School sing this song with joy and energy, accompanied by Mr. Cossin on percussion. It is rounded out with flute, fiddle, and jaw harp.
