Mystical Tibet Concert 2010

Mystical Tibet ConcertMystical Tibet Concert brings rarely seen sacred dances and chants of The Tashi Lhunpo Monks of TIBET and evocative and haunting musical collaboration of Brisbane’s string chamber orchestra, Camerata of St John’s and Tibetan musician, Tenzin Choegyal.

Camerata of St John’s a group of talented, professional Australian string players. Performing without a conductor, Camerata is known for its verve, stylish presentations, and innovative programming. Acclaimed performances provide enduring and treasured memories for its dedicated audience, players and guest artists. From its home in the heart of the emerging cultural city of Brisbane, Camerata adds a refreshing perspective to the nation’s artistic life.

Tenzin Choegyal‘s voice and musical talents are unique and mesmerizing. Tenzin draws on his traditional Tibetan roots to create original compositions which express his devotion to his cultural heritage. Recently at a US concert, a listener described hearing Tenzin Choegyal sing live as ‘heaven on earth’. His voice and music however are only part of his story. Tenzin was born in Tibet, escaped to Nepal and was raised in exile in Dharamsala, India. As a child, Tenzin would listen to his mother singing in the nomadic style of Tibet and he attributes much of his passion for that genre to her early influence.
