Internationally acclaimed for her simply stunning interpretations of Buddhist mantras and songs, Ani Choying Drolma will present sublime blend of traditional Tibetan Buddhist chants and songs from the Himalayas, which will draw upon complex mix of devotion, confidence and raw emotion to present a rare musical treat that is authentic and straight from the heart.
Ani Choying is a Nepalese Buddhist nun and internationally famed musician. CNN calls her "Nepal's rock star nun" and The Rolling Stone magazine highlights her life story as "a journey from an abused child to an angry nun to a globe-trotting Buddhist chanter and peace messenger".
