Yungchen Lhamo

May 5, 2022

Tibetan singer-songwriter Yungchen Lhamo makes a welcome return to Joe’s Pub.

In 1989 Yungchen Lhamo (which translates as ‘Goddess of Melody’) carried her baby son on a 1,200-mile journey, walking across the Himalayas from Tibet to India, then became the first Tibetan singer to achieve worldwide acclaim. Her first album, Tibetan Prayer, won the Australian Recording Industry Award for Best World Music Album in 1995. She was then signed by Peter Gabriel’s Real World Records label and released three more albums, Tibet, Tibet, Coming Home, and Ama, between 1996 and 2006. In 2013, Yungchen released her fifth album, a meditational collaboration with Russian classical pianist Anton Batagov, on the Cantaloupe Music label.

Her unique voice promotes sound healing and spiritual awakening, and has been described as: “Not only beautiful, but strong – her phrasing, control and depth of emotion are unsurpassed.” She has toured all five continents and performed, usually acapella, in opera houses, concert halls, cathedrals, rock and country music festivals, and in homes for the mentally ill and homeless.

Her long-awaited sixth album, Awakening, on which she explores the relevance of spirituality based on compassion to our busy, modern-day interdependent lives, was recorded in Spain and features flamenco singer legend Carmen Linares as guest artist on one song. The title track was released in February 2022, and the 12-song album in March 2022, by Six Degrees Records.
