Tenzin Choegyal & Little Yarra Ensemble live in concert!
Please join us for a beautiful evening of music with world renowned artist Tenzin Choegyal! Tenzin will be joined on stage by the Little Yarra ensemble, weaving together a beautiful musical collaboration for all to enjoy!
Tenzin Choegyal is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s finest musicians in the Tibetan tradition. A son of Tibetan nomads, he feels a particular connection to the music of the high Himalayan plateau.
In a career spanning 20+ years Tenzin has performed at festivals across Australia and curated numerous events and concerts including Brisbane’s annual Festival of Tibet. Internationally he has performed in New Zealand, Japan, India, Germany, Bangladesh, Russia and USA, including performances at New York’s Carnegie Hall.
He has also given special performances at public talks by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Brisbane, Sydney, Blue Mountains, Melbourne, Perth and Central Australia – an honour for any Tibetan.
While he proudly continues the nomadic lineage which is central to his musical repertoire, Tenzin also embraces opportunities to take his music away from the traditional and into uncharted territory, both in the studio and on stage. He enjoys experimenting with various genres such as jazz, electronica and indigenous music from African, Indian, Australian and Mongolian traditions. He is also the first Tibetan musician to perform regularly with string ensembles including Camerata, Queensland’s celebrated chamber orchestra.
Tenzin’s collaborative albums include The Last Dalai Lama? with Philip Glass, Peradam by Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith and the 2021 Grammy-nominated Songs from the Bardo with Jesse Paris Smith and Laurie Anderson – a moving interpretation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
Tenzin’s most recent album Yeshi Dolma is a tribute to his late mother and the culmination of a 10-year collaboration with Camerata.
An outstanding composer/ performer with a great depth of musical knowledge, intuition and inventiveness, Tenzin continues to bring new sounds of Tibet while strongly holding the essence of ancient Tibetan wisdom.
