'Save Tibet ' - Namgyal Lhamo's sensational music video

Namgyal Lhamo
Namgyal Lhamo
If you thought that Tibetan music was just about ethereal loops that blended with spiritual chanting or if it was just a hash of contemporary sound and ethnic pop and if you believe that music videos are just about self-centred performances;Shed the blinker! Here is something that speaks as loud as a global event.

2007 saw the release of her traditional album "Pure"-which was well taken in by the critics and "The Enchanted Land" -which had it's moments with the stunning 'Changkha'; but here comes the Zenith-Pointer; Netherlands based award winning Tibetan singer Namgyal Lhamo's latest offering is a thumping portrayal of what talent does to itself when left floating in still waters and finds musical rafts of real pedigree to help drift it ashore.

She is arguably the most gifted Tibetan traditional singer in the world and "The Nightingale of Tibet" has expanded the canvas and teamed with the creative genius of British rockers Marco Pirroni and Chris Constantinou- who are now "The Wolfmen" to create this musical piece which is intriguing, hopeful and at times disturbing.Pirroni (ex Adam and the Ants, Siouxsie and the Banshees) and Chris (De-Niro of the Ants) Constantinou are icons of new wave/post-punk sound and were pioneers of the British Neo-Romantic Art rock movement of the early 80's.

They score with Lhamo on 'Chang Yare' from her upcoming album 'Highland Supernova' to create Future-Rock. Intelligent, Progressive and evolved sound that snakes it's way through the explosive voice of the Tibetan singer to back up a video that speaks truly from the heart. Carefully crafted by Indian filmmaker Arvind Iyer and Produced by Frenchman Achille Forler, 'Chang Yare'-the video is alternative, gritty and dark. It has its moments of truth!

Lhamo's singing is emotional, gripping and stark and her control is the hook.

The music video is woven together in a concept that is a sure delusion killer.'Chang Yare' is sensitive yet assertive in it's treatment and the fabulous Namgyal Lhamo has surely arrived.
