""Echoes of Dharamsala takes us deep into exile as a performance space, a refugee home on the diasporic range. The metaphor of reverberation comes very much to life as Keila Diehl bears witness to the emergent politics and poetics of Tibetan rock and roll. Compassionate and modest, yet incisive and unromantic, her writing brings us close to amazingly complicated musical lives being forged in a distinct global conjuncture of modernity, desire, and longing.""â¿¿Steven Feld, Prof. of Music and Anthropology, Columbia University ""Echoes from Dharamsala is a charmingly written, ethnographically rich, theoretically ambitious book about a Tibetan community in exile. Keila Diehl joined a Tibetan rock band as its keyboard player, and from that perspective gives us a fresh and honest look at the Tibetan refugee experience through its soundscapes. She has presented us with a model of ethnography, which while not shying away from representing the conflicts and contradictions of the community she studied, nevertheless displays a deep political solidarity with the Tibetan cause.""â¿¿Akhil Gupta, author of Postcolonial Developments: Agriculture in the Making of Modern India ""Giving new meaning to ""participant-observation,"" Keila Diehl explores the politics and poetics of Tibetan cultural production in exile, in a study that is at once engaging and insightful.""â¿¿Donald S. Lopez, author of Prisoners of Shangri-La: Tibetan Buddhism and the West
