This month’s special guests are the Traditional Tibetan Musician Tenzin Cheogyal & the Monks of Tibet.
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.
The Venerable Geshe Losang Dhonyoe and the Venerable Geshe Jampa are both distinguished Buddhist teachers with decades of study, devotion and practice behind them. From the most humble beginnings as refugees fleeing persecution in Tibet, both have earned prestigious Geshe degrees from the Dalai Lama’s Sera Je Monastery in South India. Geshe Losang Dhonyoe is a master of sand mandala construction and ritual and has shared this ancient wisdom with people throughout Europe, the US, Asia and now New Zealand where he is currently teaching. Geshe Jampa was the Chant Master for Sera Je Monastery, a position reserved for the most accomplished practitioners.
