Ladakhi kids show great enthusiasm for music: they love singing, and if they ever see you with a guitar, they will nag you to teach them at least a few chords. In this lesson's video, you can hear examples of several simple Ladakhi songs. In the accompanying textbook section, we have written down the text and the translation of the song ཨ་མ་ལེ་ འཇུ་ལེ་ Amale jule! `Hello mother' for you. The `Juley song' can be found in Rebecca Norman's phrasebook (see the Books section for more details).
