“Music is like drifting clouds that fly freely over the man-made geographical borders in this infinite space of possibilities.” – Tenzin Choegyal.
Tenzin Choegyal is super happy with his album “Songs from the Bardo” being nominated for the 63rd GRAMMY Awards which will be broadcasted Sunday, March 14, 2021


 “Songs from the Bardo begins with a bell ringing out once, twice, three times, as a ritualistic chant emerges from the dense silence. The collaborative composition by avant-garde icon Laurie Anderson, Tibetan multi-instrumentalist Tenzin Choegyal, and composer and activist Jesse Paris Smith is a guided journey through the visionary text of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, unfolding in an 80-minute ebb and flow of sound and words. Songs from the Bardo is a transporting experience, meant to draw the listener into the present moment and provide a framework for inner exploration. Anderson, Choegyal, and Smith fuse modern compositional techniques with the mystique of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy to make these visionary traditions more accessible to a new generation of listeners and to reveal the ancient wisdoms contained within.”
