SYNOPSIS

Set high in the Indian Himalaya, Ladakh is home to a rich Buddhist culture and an ancient tradition of folk singing.  In the 1960s as economic development thrust change upon Ladakh, Morup Namgyal, Ladakh's greatest folk artist, began his lifelong efforts to preserve his beloved folk songs.  Using song as the medium, Morup and his peers sparked a social movement that would bring about profound and enduring change in Ladakh.  It was a movement built on education, tradition, and preservation.

What Morup could not imagine at that time was that he would ultimately embrace development and modernization.

Through the lives of three generations of the Namgyal family.  The Song Collector explores the uneasy relationship between culture and development and ultimately offers a new vision, insired by buddhist concept of the 'middle path,' that seeks to find a beneficial coexistence between tradition and modernization.
