About Tenzin Choegyal

Tenzin Choegyal is a Tibetan artist, composer, activist, musical director, and cultural ambassador, and one of the world’s finest musicians in the Tibetan tradition. As a son of Tibetan nomads, he feels a particular connection to the music of the high Himalayan plateau. Forced into exile in India as his family fled the repression in Tibet, he now resides in Australia. As a child, Tenzin would listen to his mother singing in the nomadic lineage, often noting her as an early influence of his passion for singing. He plays lingbu (bamboo flute) and dranyen (3-stringed Tibetan lute) though he is best known for his extraordinary vocal ability and performance of droklu, the nomadic music of his parents.
