Since 2011, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu started to collect contemporary songs performed by young Tibetan artists, choosing between hundreds of songs both folk and modern. They are messages from Tibet. Today we have a collection of 180 songs and 160 dances. The choreography of these dances, based on the rhythms and melodies of the songs and meaning behind song is rich in the imagery of Tibetan life and reveals the vitality of an ancient culture whose core motivation has, for centuries been the happiness of all beings, in harmony with the environment where they live.
