DHARAMSHALA, Oct. 5: Two Tibetan singers Pema Trinley, 22, and Chakdor, 32, who served four years in Chinese prison have been released recently. Photographs of the two being received by their friends and family are circulating on social media sites.

In June 2013, Dharamshala based rights group Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy reported that the two singers, both hailing from Meuruma nomadic village, were secretly sentenced by a Chinese court in Ngaba, eastern Tibet in February that year.

Trinley and Chakdor were detained in July 2012 from neighboring Machu region in Malho days after the release of their music album, “Agony of Unhealed Wounds.”

The album contains songs about the current situation in Tibet including self-immolation protests, as well as songs in praise of the Dalai Lama, Panchen Lama, Kirti Rinpoche (exiled head of the Kirti monastery) and Sikyong Lobsang Sangay, the elected head of the Tibetan people.
