Tibetan Open Road; Tibetan Music featuring Tamding Tsetan
Tibetan Open Road features native Tibetan singer and multi-instrumentalist, Tamding Tsetan. This is a truly rare chance to experience an authentic Tibetan performance. Open Road features traditional Tibetan instruments with percussion-driven accompaniment. The music experience comes even more alive with the colourful Tibetan costuming of the performers on stage. Tamding Tsetan was born in the small village of Widu in Amdo, Tibet.
He escaped from Tibet to India in 2002 after more than 43 days of walking, across the Himalayan Mountains. Alone and penniless with a yearning for education and freedom, he endured hardship and persevered becoming an accomplished musician in India. He also released his first music album Open Road, and performed in front of HH the Dalai Lama at Bodhgaya in 2012. Tamding Tsetan relocated to the United States in 2013. He lived and performed in LA before recently moving to Vancouver, Washington.
