He was born to a nomadic family in southwest Tibet, escaped into Nepal from the Chinese occupation and was raised in the Tibetan refugee community in Dharamsala, India. It was there, where His HTashi Lhujhnpo Monoliness the Dalai Lama actively encourages his people to preserve their culture through language, religion and arts, Tenzin first began to explore his musical talents.
Over the last two decades, collaboration with numerous Australian and International performers has allowed Tenzin room to experiment with rhythm, structure and to challenge traditional Tibetan musical norms. His award winning songs have found a place in the complex tapestry of global sounds.
Tenzin feels a particular connection to the music of the wandering people of his homeland. He recalls his father’s mastery of the lingbu (transverse bamboo flute) and his mother’s beautiful singing voice and attributes much of his passion to those early influences. His music has been described as “beautifully evocative,” “healing,” “mesmerizing,” “spine-tingling,” and “transcendent.”
Tenzin’s cantering rhythms, soaring vocals and exquisite flute solos have enchanted audiences around the globe. He regularly tours internationally to the US, Japan, New Caledonia, India and New Zealand and has touched the lives of thousands of people with his music and his concern for his fellow human beings. Tenzin is the founder, organizer and creative force behind the Brisbane Festival of Tibet. This annual festival celebrates Tibetan culture while raising awareness of the issues that threaten the future of Tibet and funds for Tibetans in exile.
