We don't tend to do obits and memorials here at DJ!.
But those who had the privilege to hear Lhasa de Sela in concert, who listened to her weave her enchanting songs that she delivered in her husky contralto with stories about her family and her sisters are bereft today. She died on January 1st at her home in Montréal.
Our colleague brebis noire is looking for an interview Lhasa gave and that was published in an Eastern Township newspaper a few years ago. I hope that she'll post it at her blogsite.
Lhasa was mysterious and wild. She loved music and her family. We will miss her.
Update: The aforementioned interview with Lhasa can be read at The black ewe - go read it now.
