Beautiful album!!! "Lam la Che" is a gorgeous mix of instrumental and vocal songs, blending tradition and innovation in just the right amounts. The songs are wistful, moving, and so evocative. I brought this CD with me on a multi-day road trip, and ended up listening to it over and over and over again.

by sande waybill SF Music News Sunday, October 6, 2013 Lam La Che has 19 tracks of beautiful Tibetan music, blending traditional with contemporary styles. Several of the tracks are instrumentals, with the lyrics in an accompanying booklet (in both English and German) for the vocal tracks as well as descriptions of the wordless pieces. My personal favorite track is Lama Khen, stemming from the final cries from some of those who have sacrificed their lives in the name of Tibet. The title song's lyrics are a poem by the well-known blogger-poet Woeser, now set to music. The sounds of tracks 10 and 18 stand out as somewhat different, also breaking the album into segments along with the instrumental/vocal track variations. I would recommend this 2013 release to those interested in Tibetan music, those wishing to sample something slightly different for playing in the house while cooking or doing chores, and those who simply enjoy beautiful sounds. The album can be purchased HERE, you can see a video for my favorite track HERE, & you can find out more about Techung HERE.

Global Music Consciousness Sunday, September 29, 2013 In review--Love Songs for the Tibetan Homeland Many years ago, my first introduction to Tibetan music came when friends and I attended a Tibetan monk choir performance at the University of Washington. Since that time I have heard Tibetan folkloric, sacred, and operatic songs. Mostly, I’ve heard new age versions of Tibetan songs by artists such as Nawang Khechog. Techung (his solo artist name), who now resides in San Francisco where he co-founded Chaksampa Tibetan Dance and Opera Company brings us love, folk and anthemic songs played on traditional and contemporary instruments on his CD, Tibet (On The Road). The opener, Lok Dro, a contemporary folk song asks Tibetans to return to the homeland. The universal themes of the text showed up as the perfect song for the Native American documentary, A Good Day to Die, about the Native American civil rights movement. The song Benevolent India which honors the compassionate neighbors of the Tibetan people, also received a contemporary treatment with bass, guitar and drums playing along side the traditional Tibetan drum (nga), flute (piwang) and long-neck lute (dramnyen). The sweet and beautiful tribute to the 14th Dalai Lama, Lama Khen (My Lama) touches the heart and asks listeners to express compassion. Undang Lhemo acts as a happier respite performed with vocals, percussion and the plucky long-neck lute. “Like a turquoise bee come from the direction of joy...” Techung sings. However, the attention-grabber on the CD is Lam la Che which features a poem by Chinese-Tibetan Poet, Woeser, written when she was under house arrest and also includes African-American blues guitarist Keb’ Mo’ on vocals and guitar. Looking for something upbeat? Listen to Kipotang (Enjoy), a love song that expresses delight in reuniting with a beloved. On The Road falls on the long playing side with 19 tracks and many of them short folk or traditional songs performed on Tibetan instruments. For anyone who has only heard the Tibetan monk choirs and new age productions of Tibetan songs, this album with traditional instruments, jaunty melodies, and the feel of exotic mountains, hits the spot. Discover another Tibet.
