Tibetan Musician, Singer and Dancer
I was born in Tibet in 1955 in the Southern area Lhodak.
At the age of 12, I entered the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts in Dharamsala, INDIA.
The Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts was founded in 1959 by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to preserve and
develop the rich traditions of Tibetan Arts. The members of the Institute are masters of the genuine Tibetan
traditions of music, dance and theatre.
The Institute is also well-known for performances of Ache Lhamo; the Tibetan traditional Opera. This lyric and
epic show is a mixture of dance, music, mime and acrobatics.
For over twenty years I studied and taught a wide range of popular songs and traditional dances as well as tantric
and acrobatic dances.
Working inside the T.I.P.A. as a professional artist, I obtained in 1978 the status of artistic instructor and from then
on, I have been teaching all aspects of Tibetan Traditional Arts to students and professional artists of the Institute
as well as to western students in India.
In 1982 I was appointed by the Council for Tibetan Education to teach new methods and provide fresh ideas for
songs and dances to the teachers of all Central Schools for Tibetans in India.
From 1985, I trained for three years, 20 selected students for the Diploma Course of the Ford Foundation Project.
I also participated in making musical instruments and creating costumes, musical arrangements and new
In 1990, I decided to move to France and continue a solo carrier in the West.
