My thought on the B’Day of HH was wow… 50 B’days in Exile. Hope someday soon we all can go back to Yibet without fear and celebrate HH’s B’day. Sydney Tibetan celebration was really cool. They cooked up a strom for about 500 people. It was a whole day celebration with cultural shows from the community. I think the Music teacher have done a great job in teaching the Sydney community some beautiful songs and dances. Inspiring!!!!.
Wow Sunday, what a sunday!!!!!!…. I didn’t leave for India on Sunday for some reason but it was good that I didn’t go coz, we had a huge STROM…. and our Gap got hit really hard. Everywhere looked so much like a warzone. So manytrees got uprooted. So i left the next day on Monday…. I will write more on INdia next. Love to allllll

Truly a magical as well as a mystical experience. I think we are so fortunate to have the opportunity to hear such interesting music in our beautiful cathedral.
Since the begining of last year, I have been working with two of my very dear musician friend on a project Tibet2Timbuk2. Shen Flindel a dedicated Tabla player and Marcello Milani sing a song writer and very beautiful guitarist. Tibet2Timbuk2 is a music project to bring all the musical movements and spaces from different musical traditions to give a unique journey. Just like what would one see, feel and hear if one starts a journey from Tibet and begins in Timbuktu. Imagine all these beautiful land scape, food, sounds and people one would end up meeting.
So, on 14th Nov 2008 we will be launching our first album. We have been working really hard. Recordings are coming along well. Marcello is working really hard….. now that Shen is in Japan and me in US. Look out for Nov dates….
Performance Dates: Friday August 29, Saturday August 30, 2008
Venues: St Luke’s Church Toowoomba, St John’s Cathedral Brisbane
