Texts in audio-only format

We have a large backlog of untranscribed textual material, and more pouring in all the time (thanks to out work with the Bhutan Oral Literature Project). Sound files can be found here.

Texts in translation

Folk tales that have not yet been transcribed and glossed, but are available as translations here.

Texts in video format

Some of the recordings have been put into video format, with subtitles. These can be accessed here.

The texts are also available on Youtube.

Booklets

We have some booklets that were made for early education purposes. They can be downloaded here.

Our work is supported by the Firebird Foundation, working through the Bhutan Oral Literature Project (here, or here), and with the assistance of Kunzang Choden, of Tang, in Bumthang
