■Musician's Profile
◎ Tenzin Choegyal (Voice, Dranyen, Limbu)
In 1997, Tenzin Choegyal  came to Australia with little more than a bag, his Dranyen and a voice full of passion for Tibet. His raw talent soon caught the attention of the directors of that country’s largest folk festival, Woodford Folk Festival where he still plays to packed audiences each year.  Over the years, Tenzin has created a successful international career as a musician, playing at such prestigious events as the WOMAD festivals as well as several Concerts for Tibet at Carnegie Hall, New York.
In addition to his much loved solo performances, Tenzin has been an avid collaborator with musicians from diverse cultures,traditions and genres.  From classical, contemporary to ancient traditional, Tenzin embraces opportunities to take his music to uncharted territory both in the studio and on stage.  Tenzin has six independent album releases, and his much anticipated new album will be launched at  Woodford Folk Festival (2014-15).
In 2009 Tenzin founded the annual Festival of Tibet which showcases Tibetan culture through music, film, art and discussion.  Tenzin was musical director for the Asia Pacific Screen Awards in 2011 and 2013 and has written and performed soundtracks for numerous TV shows, films and documentaries. Through his music and cultural activities such as the Brisbane Festival of Tibet, Himalayan Film Festival and Women with Wisdom concert series (Sydney Opera House, Federation Square) Tenzin has increased the profile of Tibetan culture and the struggle for self-determination amongst people throughout Australasia and beyond.
