Kang Dolma sings Ole, a traditional song performed in Manang during several local festivals. While the lingua franca of the village is the Neshyang language commonly known as Manange, all of the traditional songs are in Tibetan. This has created a disconnect for the locals who primarily use Neshyang to interact in their daily lives. Kang Dolma is one of the few people in the village who can understand the Tibetan lyrics that are sung during festivals.
