Musical Blessings: A concert with Tenzin Choegyal
Singer songwriter Tenzin Choegyal draws on his Tibetan roots to create original compositions which uniquely express his cultural lineage and the contemporary challenges faced by his people. Tenzin was born to a nomadic family in Tibet, escaped the Chinese occupation with his family in the early 1970s and was raised in a Tibetan refugee community in Dharamsala, India. There, where His Holiness the Dalai Lama actively encourages his people to preserve their culture, Tenzin first began to explore his musical talents. Tenzin’s award winning songs have found a place in the complex tapestry of global sounds while collaboration with numerous Australian and international performers have allowed him to experiment with rhythm and structure and challenge traditional Tibetan musical norms.
Tenzin will fill the Gompa with his beautiful and haunting sounds. Come and join us to experience Tenzin’s unique voice that has been described as powerful, evocative, healing, and transcendent. Remember that Tenzin brings along his wonderful CDs for sale so tuck aside a little cash for the night too. Don’t miss this opportunity!
