Namzi/ Namuyi Tibetan Spirit Medium Chants (2009)


Shada (b.~1940), is a Namzi/ Namuyi Tibetan native of Xiangshui Village,
Xichang City, Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, PR
China. Now he lives in Dongfeng Village, Shaba Town, Mianning County,
Lianshan Yi Autonomous Prefectue with his son's family. Libu Lakhi invited
him to Xining City, Qinghai Province and recorded his chanting using a
Marantz PMD660 recorder and Rode NT4 microphone in 2009. The chants include
13 types of rituals Namuyi Tibetans practice in daily life. In addition,
Shada also talked about how he became a phatse (spirit medium) and his life
as a religious specialist.
