Smithsonian Folkways Scores GRAMMY nom for Best New Age Album with Laurie Anderson, Tenzin Choegyal & Jesse Paris Smith's 'Songs from the Bardo'

Congratulations to Smithsonian Folkways artists Laurie Anderson, Tenzin Choegyal & Jesse Paris Smith for their Best New Age Album nomination, 'Songs from the Bardo,' today for the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards.

The collaboration between avant-garde artist Laurie Anderson, Tibetan multi-instrumentalist Tenzin Choegyal, and composer/activist Jesse Paris Smith, 'Songs from the Bardo' is a sonic and spoken word journey through the visionary text of the Tibetan Book of the Dead (a guide to entering the next stage of consciousness after death).
