News I only heard this morning: the sad passing away at a far too young age of that wonderful singer Lhasa de Sela. Only three albums. First, a dramatic one called La Llorona. Then, a rich multi-layered rich offering, The Living Road. And her her last one, very intimate, just called Lhasa. Melancholy never far away. A quiet, almost husky voice, always drawing you in. If you haven’t heard about her, you should.

Just go here, but go quietly now.

Lhasa de Sela died of breast cancer, on the first evening of the new year. She was 37.
