It examines the place of Hindi film songs in Dharamsala's soundscape and explores the concerns their popularity among Tibetans has raised within a community dealing with volatile inter-ethnic relations and a fear of assimilation. It also relates a conversation with a Tibetan woman has taught Tibetan music and dance in exile schools for many years.
