The Early World
With Tibetan songs by Mamgyal Lhama – Love songs by Noa –
‘Dream Chaser’ by composer Clemens Krijger.
Namgyal Lhamo studied at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts, where she specialised in classical songs from the 17th-century and Tibetan opera. This cd show the classical side of her talent with her typical, rich vibrato sound. The ‘dyanen,’ a Tibetan lute, with which Lhama usually accompanies herself plays a less prominet role in this repertoire than the ‘citer’, with its long resonance that so perfectly suits the atmosphere of these songs.
