Abstract: Comprehensive survey of the music of ethnic Tibetans, together with briefer accounts of smaller groups of the Xizang Zizhiqu/Tibet Autonomous region: Monpa, Lhoba, and Sherpa. Tibetan terminology is given in Hanyu Pinyin; a glossary matches terms to their equivalents in common-use and Wylie transcriptions of Tibetan.
