Dated 9th Aug 2008 On the eve of Olympics the premier of show of the doco TIBET's Cry for Freedom in Brisbane went really well. We had about 300 people attend it. We also had Candle4Tibet that night. Now that the Olympics is is full swing I am divided in two direction. I love sports but than I love Human values more. Good luck to all the athletes.
In coming months I have few really nice concerts. I will be joined by a String ochestra for two concerts on 29th and 30th Aug. I have few gigs at the Ekka. One exciting thing. One of my song called the Crane Song is in the finalist for Qmusic awards and I will be singing that song on the award night at the Trivoli on 12th Nov with Shen on Tabla and Marcello on Gutiar. In Sept. I am heading to US for a month for a tour there. Hope to see you sometime soon.
Dated 26thJuly 2008 Back from my Mini tour to New Zealand and New calidonia. Both of the tours went really well. It was very beautiful down in NZ bit cold but enjoyed all of the 3 Concerts. I gave a small workshop to the students from the Gammer school for Girls. Friends of Tibet organized a concert in auckland.
On coming back had 2 day rest and straight to New Calidonia for one concert. What can I say about New Caledonia. Amazing beautiful tropical french speaking nation. I felt like I was in a foriegn land because I couldn't understand the Language. It was exicting walking in the streets there without knowing what the street signs say. It was my first ever concert there and was a successful one. thanks to Acha Monique and Pascal. On the way back to Australia I declared my Dranyen as a wooden instrument with skin and unfortunately the Customs wanted to keep it and I was so upset thinking that I might not get it back. Little drama there but in the end they kept it overnight. I had the longest night without my dear instument but got it back the next day with some paperworks for next time... Yeahhhh
Ok Now next week being the Beijing Olympics I have organized a screening of a doco on the eve of the Olympics. The funds will go to Good fortune Trust helping Buddhist nuns and monks in TIBET. Please if you can come that would be great. I didn't get much lead up time to organize this. Himalayan Cafe and Dendy Cinema have been very kind in sopponsering this event. Below is the details. Tibet really needs help so please visit www.atc.org.au to see what you can do for TIBET. C U all soon Tashi delek....
In month of july I will be travelling to New Zealand and New Calidonia for few concerts. Monique whom I met at the HH's teaching in Sydney from Lotus Association kindly invited me to New Calidonia for a concert. I am very much looking foward to it.
It has been beautiful last two or so weeks. I went down to Sydney to attend the teaching on "Stages of Meditation" by HH the 14th Dalai Lama. During the teaching I played for all those came to the teaching during the Lunch break. Being able to offer my songs to all those Dharma friends during the teaching was such a great pleasure of mine. Now, I am getting ready for few upcoming shows in Brisbane, Sydney, New Zealand and US(mainly New York) so all the updates to these shows will be in my Events. So hope to see you sometime soon.
