Tibet2Timbuk2 – “Music is Life”

Rollicking Tibetan folk, afro-reggae guitar grooves and intricate Indian tabla… Sounds as if they were made for each other! Together, Tenzin Choegyal, Marcello Milani and Shen Flindell create a new joyful sound that transcends cultural boundaries.

“This is a combination of Africa, India and Tibet, that, for all its unlikeliness, has resulted in a musical masterpiece.” (Mike Raine)

Tenzin Choegyal – “Heart Sutra”

‘Heart Sutra- often in my dreams’ (2004) is Tenzin’s fourth release, and four years on from the previous CD ‘Big Happiness’ (2000), expands further his connection to the folk songs and music of the nomadic peoples of his homeland and the continuing experiences of his fellow exiled Tibetans across the diaspora. Sold out by day 4, this album was the most sought after memento by festival goers at last year’s Woodford Folk Festival shop.

Terika – “acousticaelectronica”
