Recording location: Kathamandu, Nepal
Soundsource: Prayer Wheel near Swoyambhu Stupa in Amideva Buddha park in Kathmandu, Nepal. In the beginning the prayer wheel sounds like a motor-bike. With the carhorns in the background it seams like a urban soundtrack of machines, but then the prayers wheel out of a cooking oil can brings in its very special note of sound. Magic!
Recorded by Soundman OKM and Zoom H2 August 5th 2008 in Kathamandu, Nepal.
