Cultural Influences

Lhasa: bustin' moves

One of those moments in a back-alleys of Lhasa – straight up breakdancing with the 8 – 12 year old crowd. Their parents will have been watching Bollywood and Nepali pop videos, they’ve found their own cultural well to drink from. But don’t think for a moment it’s ‘your’ breakdancing. It belongs to them now and they don’t plan on giving it back.

Sometimes you’ve gotta travel to different cultures to watch culture travel.
