Description

Tibet – the Land of Snows, home of Buddhist lamas whose ancient rituals have fascinated people for thousands of years. In exile since 1959, the monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery share their endangered culture with audiences in the West. The performance includes the music of the Himalayas – the long horns, bone trumpets, skull drums and oboes, masked dancers in brocade robes, sacred chant from the monastery and a display of the traditional art of debate, part of the monks' spiritual education, and is accompanied by introductions explaining the background to the monastery and its culture.
