Event Details:

This workshop will feature musicians and scholars from Tibet. Professor Jiayong Qunpei of China’s Minzu (Minority Nationalities) University will discuss music from Tibet, including the Tibetan opera tradition. Reshi Tsering Tan, a popular and well-respected Tibetan recording artist, will share his experience as founder of the Shangri-La Folk Music Preservation Association, a non-profit organization devoted to making field recordings of traditional Tibetan music, especially fast-vanishing religious music. Select Tibetan musicians will demonstrate various types of Tibetan traditional and monastic music. This workshop anticipates the 2014 Pan-Asian Music Festival which will be dedicated to music from Tibet and Mongolia.
