Since fleeing Tibet on foot in 1989, Yungchen Lhamo, whose name means “Goddess of Song,” has emerged as the world’s leading Tibetan vocalist. She mesmerizes audiences with her haunting a cappella performances and her deeply spiritual, often political songs. Through her arresting music, which explores Buddhist themes of spiritual pilgrimage, soul searching and a delight in the natural environment, she shares Tibet’s rich cultural heritage. Lhamo has collaborated with such luminaries as Natalie Merchant, Philip Glass and Annie Lennox and has performed for spiritual and political leaders across the globe, including His Holiness, the Dalai Lama.
