Lamka Lamsa is a term that comes from the distant future, describing a kind of nostalgia or longing for a culture that has been destroyed or lost. The term can also describe a method of time traveling to the past in order to enjoy one’s ancestral practices. For example, going back in time to enjoy foods that you and/or your grandmothers used to eat but do not exist anymore in the future.
Music - “Rawroo” (excerpt) and “Lamka Lamsa.”
