Biography:

Yungchen Lhamo:
Since her pilgrimage on foot from her beloved homeland of Tibet, Yungchen Lhamo has emerged as the world's leading Tibetan vocalist. Her haunting performances have enchanted audiences in more than 70 countries and have garnered critical praise worldwide. Her music has been described as "brilliant" (The New Yorker), "sublime" (Rolling Stone), and "spine-tingling" (The Times, London); she has been called "angel-voiced" (Newsweek) and praised for her "pristine, gliding vocal lines" (The New York Times). Having recently returned from another extended pilgrimage, Yungchen is now back on the world stage, and audiences can revel in her music once again. Through her arresting songs - which explore Buddhist themes of spiritual pilgrimage, soul searching, and a delight in the natural environment as well as peace, forgiveness, and finding one's own beliefs - she hopes to share Tibet’s rich cultural heritage and the innate grace and goodness of the Tibetan people with the rest of the world.
