From New York’s Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House, from Womadelaide to Woodford Folk Festival, and many places in between Tibetan singer-songwriter Tenzin Choegyal has thrilled audiences around the world with his soaring vocals and mastery of traditional instruments. He has performed before the Dalai Lama and shared the stage with many well-known artists and composers. But he especially enjoys the chance to perform at more intimate concerts where he can share playful stories and well-loved traditional tunes with his audiences.

Tenzin was born in Tibet, a child of Tibetan nomads who followed their herds and traded salt, spending summers in the mountains and wintering on the plains. However, he spent his early years in Mustang, in the north-east of Nepal after his family fled the Chinese occupation in the early 1970’s. But memories of the music of his homeland have stayed with him. 

An outstanding vocalist, Tenzin is a master of traditional Tibetan instruments such as the dranyen (long-necked lute) and lingbu (transverse bamboo flute). He recalls, when growing up, hearing his father playing the flute and his mother singing the nomadic songs of Tibet. Alongside traditional Tibetan Buddhist devotional chants, these tunes still play a central part in his musical repertoire today.

Tenzin sets aside several weeks each year for his very special “For Tibet with Love Home Concert Tour”, performing concerts to raise money and awareness in support of Tibetans in exile. This year he has agreed to donate a portion of funds raised to support the work of the Tibetan Children’s Village School in Dharamsala, India, where he spent his childhood. 

Heyfield Community Resource Centre is delighted to be hosting one of Tenzin’s concerts at Heyfield Memorial Hall in MacFarlane Street on Friday November 9th at 7.00pm. The concert will be followed by light refreshments. This promises to be a joyful evening of music and sharing as well as a unique opportunity to support Tenzin in his cause.
