Discussion | Exploration of Sound Healing with Tibetan-born Artist (online)


An exploration of sound healing with Tibetan-born artist Yungchen Lhamo in conversation with her friend, record producer and musician Jamshied Sharifi , followed by a Q&A with attendees. Yungchen Lhamo was born and raised in Lhasa, Tibet. Her name, which translates as 'Goddess of Melody,' was given to her by a lama at birth. In 1989, she made the month-long, 1,200-mile journey across the Himalayan Mountains to Dharamsala, India, in order to pursue her dreams. Yungchen later moved to Australia, where she began to sing prayers of meditation that inspired her to record her first album, Tibetan Prayer, which won the Australian Recording Industry Award (ARIA) for Best World Music Album in 1995. She has shared a stage with numerous artists, including Philip Glass, Michael Stipe, Peter Gabriel, Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLachlan, Laurie Anderson, Sir Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, and Lou Reed, among others. With her most recent album Awakening (Six Degrees Records), Yungchen, who now lives in Upstate New York, explores the relevance of compassion-based spirituality to our modern-day, interdependent lives - each song reflecting topics that have become ever-more highlighted by the Covid-19 pandemic. She says: "Awakening aims to appeal to those of any religion, or of none, who are interested in sound healing and spiritual awakening. "I truly believe that voice has a vibrational energy to connect, empower, heal and transform all human beings. I hope these new songs will help bring inner peace and true happiness to everyone who hears them". Yungchen Lhamo (meaning 'Goddess of Melody') walked across the Himalayas to India and became the first Tibetan singer to achieve worldwide acclaim. Her unique, innovative voice promotes sound healing and spiritual awakening. The title track from her recent album, 'Awakening', (Six Degrees Records) explores the relevance of spirituality based on compassion to our modern-day interdependent lives.
