Tibetan performing arts

This is Techung, who was a young musician training at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts in North India when I worked there in about 1986.
One of the things I remember most strongly about this time was the Dalai Lama's Court Dance Master visiting from Tibet, very old, having been allowed by the Chinese to come out for a few months to pass on the performing traditions of Tibet to the young Tibetans born in exile. Techung is one of very few Tibetan musicians working in the West trying to keep these traditions alive. He is trying to launch a recording project. If you would like to support him you can visit his site at
 Please pass this blog post on to anyone who you think might be interested in supporting his work. Thank you.
