Caught in the Storm

I just found out last week that the American born Lhasa de Sela passed away in January of this year. Heartbreaking. She lost her private battle with breast cancer. Just 37 years old with so much talent - now gone. She had just released an album, titled Lhasa, in the summer of 2009. Listening to it again after hearing the news, makes me think about a woman heading into the unknown with clarity.

From the moment I heard the song "La Frontera" in 2004, I was inspired. Her multicultural background and nomadic life inspired some of her most beautiful songs in French, Spanish, and English. Someday her 3 records will be re-discovered and she will revered as one of the greatest of this era.

Here are three videos and two songs. La Frontera and La Confession from The Living Road album, and Rising, Love Came here, and Fool's Gold from her final release - simply titled Lhasa.
