Lhasa de Sela

Found this great singer/songwriter on YouTube. Unfortunately, she just died. Destined to be the new late great Nick Drake. Her song “I’m Going In” can be seen here – which is a very poignant piece about her own mortality. What if we viewed death as going in to something, going home or the beginning of something new…



  1. Wow.

    Gorgeous. Haunting. Mesmerizing.

    Never had heard of her before, so Googled her. She was American-born, Mexico-raised, lived in Canada and France. How sad that she died so young.

  2. She was the most sublime of singers. Hypnotic, but with a very different energy than, say, Lila Downs. I’m so sorry to see this.
